they are creatures which prey on fish —

Fall Football Frolic 

Clio and Philo opened this year's acti- 
vities with a Fall Football Frolic on 
Friday, September 25. The auxiliary 
gymnasium in the Lynch Memorial Phy-

to represent a football field. Goal posts 
stood at each end of the room, and 
along the side walls were benches and 
yard markers. Pennants of various col- 
leges and universities on the walls add- 
ed to the colorful decorations. 

Music for the dance was supplied by 
records, but the Clionian Quartet — Jerry 
Nichols, Sally Herr, May Eschenbach, 
and Joann Butt — sang "Carolina Moon'" 
and "Sentimental Journey."

Other special features of the evening 
were a broom dance and an elimination 
dance. Frosh Pat Gordon won the door 
prize. Refreshments served were cokes 
and pretzels.

coffee and doughnuts in the girls' dormi- 
tories. Clio is also selling candy in the

New One-Platoon System, 
Large Squad of Freshmen 
To Aid Dutchmen on Gridiron 

Lebanon Valley College's 1953 foot- 
ball prospects seem somewhat better 
than they did last year due to the ad- 
vent of the new "one-platoon" rule. 
Under this new ruling, a player cannot 
re-enter the game in the same quarter 
in which he is removed. This will not 
handicap the Flying Dutchmen to any 
extent due to the relatively small squad 
involved. Since many players last sea- 
son played on both offense as well as 
defense, Coach Dick Fox will not have 
as much trouble reconditioning his 
players to the new rule as will many 
coaches of larger schools. Under this 
rule, games such as Lebanon Valley's 
contest with Gettysburg last year will 
not occur. In that unusual game, the 
Bullets overpowered Valley's men in the 
last half with fresh material. 

Although only ten lettermen return 
from last year's squad, Coach Fox 
hopes that the large influx of freshmen 
will make up for the men who gradu- 
ated last year or who have been in- 
ducted into the armed forces over the 

Heading the team this year will be 
co-captains Ed Hutchko, from Wilkes- 
Barre, and Dick Musselman, from 
Quakertown. Other returning lettermen 
who will form the nucleus of the team 
are Lou Sorrentino, the Valley's great 
quarterback; Frank Retrievi, George 
Radanovic, and Gene Zimmerman, ends; 
Dick Sparks, tackle; Dean Becker, 
guard; Lou Gittleman, understudy to 
Hutchko at center; and Don DeBenedett, 
who runs out of halfback with Mussel- 

However, there are some gaping holes 
which Coach Fox hopes to fill with 
freshmen and sophomores who did not 
see much action last year. Among the 
freshmen who will probably see plenty 
of action this year are Russell (Rusty) 
Owens, a 6\ 220-lb. freshman from 
Harrisburg, running out of tackle; Roy 
Grubb, a 6' 1", 185-lb. freshman from 
Palmyra who plays guard; and two 
freshmen who are slated to share the 
vacant fullback post — Ross Plasterer 
from Lebanon and Jim Stanfield from 
Lansdowne. Men returning from last 
year's team who will be on the gridiron 
frequently include tackle Don Umberger 
from Lebanon; guards Jack Sproul from 
Lansdowne and Bob Walker from Boon- 
ton, New Jersey; and backs Bob Hughes 

from Palmyra, Dave Bosacco from 
Glenolden, and Bob Schoonmaker from 
Port Jervis, New York. Rounding out 
the squad are freshmen Richard Har- 
mon, Charles Hartman, and Douglas 
Miller, ends; Oscar Dahl and Otto 
Wolpert, tackles; Robert Birch, Edgar 
Fory, and Thomas Nettis, guards; Gene 
Romanoff, center; and Harold Ben- 
ninghoff, Frank Catanzaro, Robert 
Crayne, and Paul Snyder, backs. 

Lebanon Valley faces a somewhat 
tougher schedule than last year, drop- 
ping Upsala and Juniata Colleges but 
playing Wilkes College and rescheduling 
Muhlenberg College after a lapse of 
one year. Back on the schedule will 
be such rough opponents as Gettys- 
burg, Albright, and Western Maryland. 

Last Friday afternoon the squad went 
to Lancaster for a scrimage with Frank- 
lin and Marshall College. The team 
showed some promise on offense but 
was rather weak on the defense.

Honorable Mention 
Attained By Lancia 
In Basketball Yearbook 

Howard Landa, Lebanon Valley's out- 
standing basketball player, was chosen 
by Converse, the 1953 basketball year- 
book, for honorable mention in its 1953 
All-American selections. Howie joins 
such other luminaries as Lange and 
Clune of Navy, Arnelle of Penn State, 
Conlin of Fordham, Grekin and Iehle of 
La Salle, Hemric of Wake Forest and 
Markey and Perry of Holy Cross among 
others in this category. 

Lebanon Valley also gained some all 
star staus when Howard Landa, Herb 
Finkelstein and Leon Miller made the 
Western Middle Atlantic Conference All- 
Star Team. Landa also made the Raleigh 
NCAA All-Star team. 

To open our new column in La Vie, 
henceforth to be known as The "L" Men, 
we are going to feature two of the most 
outstanding athletes ever to attend Leba- 
non Valley — the football team's likeable 
co-captains, Dick Musselman and Ed- 
ward Hutchko. 

An econmics student, Ed Hutchko 
hails from the small upstate town of 
Nanticoke. He comes to LVC as a prod- 
uct of Plymouth High School, where he 
achieved gridiron stardom and was 
awarded for his merits with honorable 
mention on the All-State football team. 

At 5' 9" and a compact 165 pounds, Ed 
will probably see double duty this season 
both at center and guard. Though last 
year predominantly used in a defensive 
ro l e — a position which he prefers — Ed 
will be virtually a sixty-minute man, now 
that the two-platoon system has ended. 

A friendly, good-natured fellow, Ed 
is better known around campus as Sam 
or Hutch. He will be the recipient of 
four letters of varsity football at LVC. 
A member of the "L" Club for the past 
three years, Hutch was recently elected 
treasurer of that organization. 

For summer work, Hutch earns his 
dough by working in a bakery. After 
graduation, Hutch contemplates getting 

married and entering some phase of the 
business world. 

The other leader of this year's team, 
however, plans to be a biology teacher. 
Dick Musselman is not only the leading 
scorer of last year's football team, but 
also one of the finest defensive backs 
that the Flying Dutchmen have. He is 
one of the key factors in Coach Fox's 
plans for this year of "one-platoon" foot- 

The fact that he was elected "Mr. 
LVC" by his classmates proves that Dick 
is one of the most popular men on cam- 
pus. Quiet and studious, Dick makes 
friends easily, which is a tribute to the 
fact that he is president of both Knights 
of the Valley and Tri Beta, honorary 
society for biology students. 

Not content with being a top-flight 
football player and a good student, Dick 
is also the only family man on the team. 
His wife and 14-months old son, Wayne, 
live in Quakertown. Strictly an outdoor 
man, Dick says that hunting and fishing 
are his favorite avocations. 

Dick is confident that the team this 
year, although rugged in spots at the 
present time, will improve and have a 
successful season. We believe that Dick's 
confidence will be rewaided. Best of luck 
to Dick and Sam and to the team they

Basketball Team 
Adds New Talent 

Although basketball is somewhat out 
of season throughout the country, it is 
never a dead subject at Lebanon Valley 
College. As a matter of fact, to the 
Lebanon Valley student it has become 
a steady year-round diet. 

Who are the new prospects? Who's 
back from last year? What are some 
new teams on the schedule? These 
questions deserve answering. 

Lebanon Valley has imported some 
new talent to attempt to protect and to 
add to last year's phenomomenal record 
of 20 and 3. These new freshmen in- 
clude: Don Reinhard, a six-foot four 
giant from Pine Grove, Bob Nelson 
at 6' 3" and Dick Shover at 6 foot 1 
from John Harris in Harrisburg. Ken 
Schulyer, 5' 10", from Columbia, Pa., 
Don Banchik at six one and half from 
New York City, and Larry Mentzer at 
5' 9" from Myerstown. 

From last year's squad three first 
stringers are returning: Lou Sorrentino, 
the Sharon Hill three letter-man, Herb 
Finkelstein, one of the most outstanding 
floor players in the country and Howard 
Landa, probably one of the top all- 

Athlete Hank DiJohnson Returns 
To Assist Football Coach Dick Fox 

Henry DiJohnson, former Lebanon 
Valley athlete, returned to his alma ma- 
ter this year as assistant to the head foot- 
ball coach, Dick Fox. As an undergrad- 
uate, he piled up many records playing 
football, basketball, and baseball, and 
was one of the few athletes to win 12 
varsity letters. A fullback in the 1949- 
50 season, he was voted the Most Valu- 
able Small College Player in Pennsyl- 

This was quite an accomplishment be- 
cause during his high school years at 
Lebanon Catholic High Hank, as he is 
most often called, did not participate in 
varsity football. In fact, he played foot- 

ball for the first time during his fresh- 
man year in college. 

During the summer Hank plays pro 
basketball with the Chattanooga "Look- 
outs," in the Class AA Southern Associa- 

He has played two years of baseball 
with Niagara Falls and was voted Most 
Valuable Player in the Middle Atlantic 
League both of these years. 

In private life he runs a sporting goods 
store in his home town cf Lebanon. 

Asked about his opinion of this years 
squad, Hank replied that it was too early 
in the season to give a definite answer, 
but he believes that the team is rounding 
out and looks promising. 

around stars in college basketball. Also 
returning are Bob Blakeney, Howard 
Rosier, and Gerry Steager, who was 
formerly ineligible. 

New teams on the schedule include 
two games on a home and home basis 
with Temple, one game with Drexel 
and one game at the Palestra in Phil- 
adelphia with Villanova. The team 
opens November 28 at York with a 
team yet unnamed.

The Student's Right to Think 

The purpose of a college education is to teach students how to think, not what 
to think. Education should not equip one with a set of ready-made conclusions, 
but should equip one with the skill to collect evidence, organize it and evaluate it 
for himself, to reach sound conclusions. . . . 

The world is full of dangerous ideas. But to expose the student to these ideas — 
among others — in the educational situation which demands that the student think 
for himself is a very different kind of situation from that which expects the 
student to accept the teachers views. The latter situation condemns the student 
to ignorance because of the fear that he cannot be trusted to think fully, deeply 
and honestly. 

Perhaps nowhere in the college curriculum is this distinction between propa- 
gandizing and informing more crucial than in religion and philosophy, because the 
concepts dealt with in these courses reach to the fundamental articles of faith 
upon which individuals and nations build their lives. 

There is no realm of human activity where it is more dangerous to be ignorant 
or prejudiced. We must not let fear of free minds condemn our students to the sin 
of ignorance. — Iowa State Daily.

All eyes will be turned toward the musicians on Homecoming Day when 

the Girls Band, arrayed in their new trousers, will march with the College 

Band. Besides adding their natural beauty to the over-all picture, "Let's face 

it, men, they can really get the sound." (Quoted from little Bobby). 


Congratulations to Betty Jane Swisher and Tom Wolfgang on their engage- 
ment. We hope you two will always make sweet music together. 


A baby daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hornberger on August 
8. We'd like to send our best wishes to the proud parents on the arrival of 
their second child, Kathleen Lee. The father is a member of the class of 1953,. 
which graduated in June. 


Two freshman girls, Grace Jane Gorbey and Georgianne Funk, have been

Believe it or not, here we are, back in the old college routine — class,, 
study, eat, meetings, downtown, study, bed; class, study, eat, meetings, down- 
town, study, bed; etc., etc., etc., and then WEEKEND. Yes, after those first 
few exciting weeks of class, we're beginning to face the inevitable piles of 
homework and, of course, the tests. But there are other things to college 
life too . . . 

Happy Birthday, Ike . . . 

Like, for instance, the thrill that all the conservatory members and a few 
college people got this week when they sang The Song of America under the 
direction of Fred Waring for the celebration of President Eisenhower's birthday. 
Here's betting that even the confirmed Democrats will be telling their grand- 
children about that day! 

A Hit for New Joisey . . . 

And then there was the weekend sponsored by that ever-loyal and very 
peppy group, the kids from New Jersey. Even we Pennsylvanians must admit 
they did a great job! 

The Big Day's A Comin' . . . 

And then, finally, one of the biggest events of the year is coming, and 
just next week, too. We refer, of course, to Homecoming Day — the time 
when shrieks of welcome are heard all over campus as the upperclassmen greet 
their old friends. It's a big day for the freshmen, too; for the Tug-of-War is 
one of the first events of the day. We won't make any predictions but we'll 
just add a word of warning: Freshmen, don't throw your dinks away yet; you'll 
probably be needing them for some time to come! Oh well, Christmas is 
coming too . . . 

In the afternoon, of course, there'll be a great football game; then in the 
evening, Wig and Buckle will present the play, The Male Animal; may we urge 
your support of what we know will be a fine presentation. Finally, at 8:30 
p. m. we'll all be seeing each other at the first really BIG dance of the year, 
the annual L Club dance. A group of well-known alumni swingsters plus a 
few present students will make up the combo for the evening, and from all 
rumors, they are planning some terrific numbers. We know you'll be there in 
full force. 

Competition . . . 

Room 214 vies with Room 10. Fellas, you should see them roll their own. 
Davis' sure has been kept busy lately. Sandy now needs some Kools as badly 
as Irene needs an icepack. 

Turn About's Fair Play . . . 

For those of you who are new to L. V. C, be prepared for some fun 
and also some odd happenings this weekend — it'll be the ladies' turn again for 
the annual Gander Weekend festivities. In case you're still in the dark, this is 
an affair sponsored by the women's governing bodies in which the girls ask 
the fellows for dates, call for them, open doors and "perform all the rites of 
good etiquette, and, of course, PAY THE BILLS. Girls, this is your big 
chance; don't be shy, but ask the man of your dreams for a date. Incidentally, 
you might be surprised at. how many romances have begun in just this way. 
A barn social, with dancing, fun, and refreshments, is being planned for Friday 
night; and Saturday is left free for movies, bowling, or whatever your hearts 

See You There . . . 

So you see, many big events are in the offering around here; in fact we're 
all awaiting them just as the public was awaiting the Kinsey report and the 
boys in Gockley Hall are awaiting North Hall's first fire drill. Let's get ready 
to add some spice to the old college routine!

which the rushing-pledging procedure to 
be followed this year was organized. 

Members of the Life Work Recruits 
are those students who have definitely 
decided to devote full-time service to the 
Christian church. Meetings are held ev- 
ery third Tuesday of the month in Philo 

Representatives from the group are in- 
vited to different churches to provide the 
entfire church service, from speaking and 
leading devotions to singing and playing 
the jpiano. 

The program for the 1953 year began 
wifh a hike and picnic at Fink's Grove. 
In October the group will take a trip to 
historical landmarks cf the E. U. B. 
Church. Another highlight for the month 
©f October will be Christian Vocations 
Week, which will be observed by all on 
campus. During this week special em- 
phasis is given to the establishment of the 
Christian way of life as a basis for any 
vocation or profession. 


The November meeting will take the 
Life Work Recruits to the Avon Home. 
Each year the group makes this visit and 
presents to the people there a devotional 
program. A traditional visit to the Chil- 
drens' Home in Elizabethtown will take 
place in December. A program and en- 
tertainment will be provided for the chil- 
dren there. 

A week of prayer will be observed 
during the month of January with all 
the churches in Annville cooperating. 

The LWR officers for the coming year 
include: president, Robert Hower; vice- 
president, Donald Harbaugh; secretary, 
Shirley Walker; treasurer, Richard Yo- 
der; and deputation chairman, Elmer 

Anyone who feels that he would like 
to devote his life to Christian work is 
welcome to join Life Work Recruits.

Dean Theodore Keller announced that 
mailboxes for correspondence between 
the administration, faculty, organizations, 
and classes will be soon placed in the 
Dean of Men and Women's office. All 
correspondence between these groups 
mentioned will go thru this route. Each 
organization should appoint a person to 
check these mailboxes. 

As a result of Professor Riley's sug- 
gestion that a Budgetary Committee be 
appointed to help plan a tentative budget 
for the Student-Faculty Council this year, 
it was decided that by the next meeting 
each organization should have submitted 
an estimate of the amount of money the 
organization will want from the Student- 
Faculty Council, if any at all. 

Tonight the Student-Faculty Council 
meets again at 7 p.m. Don't forget to be

have entered teams, but the two upper- 
classes have not submitted entries. The 
opening games have been set for Oct. 20,

date. Day students are urged to take 
part in these activities. Anyone can enter 
competition and in the individual sports 
such as singles and doubles table tennis, 
arrangement as to playing time is made 
by the respective opponents as soon as 
the brackets are posted. Therefore, tour- 
nament play in these sports may take 
place at any hour of the day when facili- 
ties are available. 

Entries for team sports are made by 
anyone representing his class. Entries for 
individual sports are made by the student 

A point scoring system has been de- 
vised whereby the class champion will be 
determined by mid-May. 

The Seniors and Juniors are far be- 
hind their underclass competitors. The 
Frosh and Sophomores are itching for 
combat and Fearless Fearnot has predict- 
ed the Sophs to come out on top. In fact, 
they are already boasting of their unbeat- 
able abilities. 

Additional information may be had at 
the Physical Education Office in the

Another primary purpose of the Poli- 
tical Science Club is to teach parlia- 
mentary procedure by practical experi- 
ence in club meetings. This knowledge 
is invaluable training to those who wish 
to be campus leaders as well as social 
and business leaders after graduation. 
But all that is connected with the 
Political Science Club is not work and 
study. There are two dinner dances 
annually as well as small campus so- 
cials. Nor is the membership limited to 
Political Science students. Anyone in- 
terested is welcome. 

The next meeting of the organiza- 
tion will be held October 22 at 4 p.m. 
in room 212 of Washington Hall. All 
who are interested in learning Roberts'

and having lots of fun are urged to 

S.C.A. Explains 
Commission Work 

Worship, study, and action are the 
three means by which members of the 
Student Christian Movement express 
their adoration and love of God and 
Christ, their desire to know and under- 
stand Him, and their willingness to "be 
about their Father's business." 

Through the years, members have 
come to realize that because of in- 
dividual interests it is better to have 
large groups divide into smaller groups 
for effective work. These groups, 
known as commissions, represent four 
major phases of Christian outlook. At 
Lebanon Valley each commission pre- 
sents one fellowship program each 
semester and undertakes one special 
project study. Therefore, commission 
work is an opportunity for students to 
participate in the activities in which 
they are most interested. Each com- 
mission has a student chairman and 
a faculty advisor, and meets, plans its 
activities, and carries them out accord- 
ing to its own wishes. 

Christian Faith and Heritage Com- 
mission is concerned with adding to 
the individual's awareness of the back- 
ground of the Christian tradition; of 
the wealth of the wisdom of the Bible, 
and of the meaning of God's influence 
on men's lives. Student chairman is 
Lynn Sparks; faculty advisor, Professor 
Ralph Shay. 

Personal Campus Affairs Commis- 
sion is active in promoting richer per- 
sonal relationships, in aiding the student 
in expressing himself as a Christian in 
his work and study, and in building 
more democratic goverment on campus. 
Student Chairman is Mel Sponsler; 
faculty advisor, Mr. George Marquette. 

Social Responsibility Commission is 
interested in promoting a Christian out- 
look on social, political and economic 
problems, in securing full and equal 
opportunities for all, and in providing 
mature, trained volunteer leaders for 
community life. Student Chairman is 
Pat Oyer; faculty advisor, Mrs. Louella 

World Relatedness Commission is en- 
listed to the support of the United Na- 
tions, the assistance of students in 
stricken countries, the increasing of 
fellowship and unity among the peo- 
ples of the world, and the extension of 
the missionary work of the church. 
Each year this group sponsors an In- 
ternational Week-end at L. V. C. in 
which foreign students are brought to 
the campus for study, fellowship and 
recreation. Student Chairman is Dick 
Yoder; faculty advisor, Miss Alice

Each organization on campus will have 
a booth. These booths, which will be 
arranged in the showy fashion of a carni- 
val midway, will be in the hall of the 
basement of the building. Some of the 
colorful ideas for these booths are a 
seance, fortune telling, a horse and buggy 
ride around campus, bingo, and a white 
elephant sale. For admission, feet will 
be measured and a penny an inch will be 
charged to enter. All profit will go to

Meet the Guys and Gals 
Under the Dinks and Ties 

How many members of the class of '57 do you know? Ever wonder about 
their interests and talents? La Vie's roving reporters have found a wide variety 
among the frosh this year. 

First of all, the frosh boast a number of athletes. For example, Paul 
Snyder, a business administration major from Dallastown, excelled in baseball, 
basketball, track and football while in high school. Paul already has proved 
himself capable on Valley's football team. Rusty Owens of Harrisburg, Carl 
Grubb of Palmyra, and Ross Plasterer from Lebanon were all able athletes in 
their high schools and have also gained positions on Valley's football team. A 
few more of the football players are Bob Birch, Gene Romanhoff, Bob Crayne, 
Frank Catanzaro, Jim Stanfield, Chuck Wolpert, Tom Nettis, Hal Benninghoff, 
and Charles Hartman, all of whom the frosh are very proud. 

A few of the future basketball stars are Bob Nelson, Dick Shover, Lum 
Reinhard, and Don Banchik. Bob and Dick hail from Harrisburg. Lum's home 
is in Pine Grove. Don, a New Yorker, is a pre-dental student. 

A few female frosh also have athletic ability. To prove this we have Dottie 
Book, Joanne Young, and Arlene Reynolds who are quite handy with the 
hockey stick. 

The new elementary education course has attracted four freshmen. The 
future teachers are Ruth Sheetz of Reading, Mildred Greybeck of Windber, Lois 
Gingrich of Lebanon, and Jackie Hoke from Pittsburgh. 

In the science department you may meet some of the future chemists of 
the freshmen class, such as George Wentling from Annville. Tom Garret from 
Lebanon, who was president of his class in high school; Murry Grosky, whose 
sideline is playing a drum in the college band; Cyrus Hollinger, a native of 
Virginia; and 'Tom Teates, another Southerner, are all planning to enter the 
field of ' science. Jackie Dove, a Lebanon day student, is one of the female 
science majors. Jackie p'ans to become a doctor in the future. Henry Abram- 
son, who hails from Philadelphia, also intends to make medicine his career. 
Jo Anne Grove, from Red Lion, is also a science major. 

In the hallways of the Conservatory you may meet Mary Lou Heffley, better 
known as Bonnie. She hails from Oley, Pennsylvania, and majors in voice. 
Bonnie has sung on radio and television programs and hopes to become a pro- 
fessional singer. Usually found with Bonnie is Myrtle Brouse, a voice major 
and day student from Lebanon. Myrtle's main interest at this time seems to 
be bass horn; she gets the necessary energy from the food she eats in her father's 

The "mighty mite" of the frosh in the Conserv is Bonnie Lou Speck from 
Huntingdon. Bonnie, just a shade over five feet tall, plays excellent trombone 
and won a superior rating in the National Federation of Music Clubs. 

Three pianists who competed in the 1952 State Forensic League met at 
LVC as freshmen. Hannelore Wanner from Feasterville won superior ratings 
in the 1952 and 1953 contest. Joan Conway of Dallastown and William Work- 
inger of Red Lion won excellent ratings in the 1952 Forensic competion. Bill 
also received a superior rating in clarinet. 

The girl who is often seen staggering down the Conserv steps under a load of 
music, clarinet cases, stands, and books is Emma Herr from Lancaster. Emma 
plays clarinet in the Lancaster Symphony and teaches private lessons in her 
spare time. 

Another symphony member is Marilyn Slyoff of Hatboro, Pennsylvania. 
Marilyn is a violinist with the Harrisburg Symphony and played in the recent 
concert presented by this group. 

A powerful alto voice heard in a practice room may belong to June 
Lykens, who is a member of the Glee Club. She plays the organ and directs 
the choir at Bern Evangelical and Reformed Church near Reading, which is her 
home town. 

Clarence Linden Mcllvaine, better known as Lin, is the easy-going, likable 
frosh from Georgetown, Delaware. He is majoring in voice, and his hobby is 

Another Charles in the freshman class is Charles Kindt of Allentown. He 
sang at the Cedar Crest College Festival last summer. There were about one 
hundred select voices participating in the festival. 

The rest of the students are scattered throughout the college. The political 
science department holds Bob Mease from Maplewood, New Jersey. His out- 
side interests are football, baseball, and a girl named Pat. Carol Dannettell, a 
future nurse, hopes to work in an Indian Reservation in Mexico in the future. 
Carol hails from Elizabethtown, but she has spent most of her life in Denver, 
Colorado. A New Jerseyite, Chet Keyser is majoring in history, but claims his 
main interests lie in sports. Mary Grebe of Lebanon is majoring in history, 
but has an outside interest in Delaware. Carlisle sends us Barry Franciscus, 
whose major is biology. Barry is quite an excellent drummer too. 

Polly Risser, Lititz, and Gloria Foster, Lebanon, are business administration 
students. Polly is also a capable flutist, for she held first chair in the District 

There are many more freshmen whom we have missed, but now you have a 
better picture of the versatile freshmen, the class of 1957!

about him before I had my first date 
with him. But now I know he is a 
first rate drummer, a good dancer, and 
a smooth driver. His manners are 
polished, his conversation intelligent, 
his interests varied, and his friends 
interesting. . . He frequently asks his

he usually is rewarded for his efforts

his eyes are not well suited for night 
driving, but they do focus quite readily 
in a darkened room . . . His mother, 
not his father, is object of much respect 
and tender appreciation . . . Two years 
in the Navy — he is a typical sailor. 

He likes his girls to look windblown, 
to go barelegged in the summer, to 
wear lipstick only when in public, to 
be a smart dresser, to have an inviting 
shape, and to look "sweet and innocent"

nearly four years now and he likes 
fraternity parties very much. He also 
likes beach parties, "French '75'", and 
soggy mashed potatoes. Since he's 
been at the University he's developed 
the habit of saying, "Hey, that's sexy" 
and he applies it to white suede shoes,

Plans for tomorow evening's County 
Fair, the responsibility of undertaking 
the next edition of the L-Book, and 
student representation on the faculty's 
Student Conduct Committee were among 
the matters discussed at the meeting 
of the Student-Faculty Council on 
Thursday, October 15. 

Student-Faculty members were re- 
minded that they may not represent two 
clubs at one SFC meeting, but that 
non-members may substitute for regu- 
lar members. Money can be obtained 
from the SFC for school functions only 
if they are open to the entire student 

A letter is being sent to college 
president Dr. Frederick K. Miller stat- 
ing that the SFC wishes to take the 
responsibility of editing the L-Book for 
this coming year. 

A motion was made that a letter be 
sent to the faculty recommending that 
the Student-Faculty Council be allowed 
to have two representatives on the 
Student Conduct Committee. The 
motion was passed by a vote of four- 
teen in favor and nine opposed. Seven 
members were absent from the meet- 

SFC president Samuel Yeagley an- 
nounced that a meeting of the entire 
student body of LVC is scheduled for 
Monday, December 7, at 6:45 p.m. in 
the Lynch Memorial Physical Educa- 
tion Building. 

County Fair chairman Julia Ulrich 
reported on plans for County Fair 
which is being held in conjunction with 
a pep rally and dance tomorrow night. 
Albright College has been invited to 
the campus for the evening, since LVC 
will oppose Albright in football Satur- 
day night at Reading. 

It was announced that college chap- 
lain and professor of religion, Dr. 
Maynard Sparks, is the new faculty 
member of SFC and that Mary Lou 
Young, SFC secretary, will represent 
the SFC on the Religious Emphasis 
Week Committee. 

Tonight the SFC meets again at 7 
p.m. Don't forget to be there if you 
are an organization representative. 


Autumn has arrived on Lebanon Valley's campus, with its falling leaves, 
its clear bright days, and its chilly mornings. It has brought with it numerous 
tests, reference readings, and research papers. And, in the weeks past or im- 
mediately to come, it has also brought: 

An impasse on the morning of October 24, when the failure of either side 
to achieve a victory in the annual tug-of-war caused some poor freshmen to 
ruminate on the subject "To dink or not to dink." It turns out they'll have to 
wait and pray that we defeat Albright in football. Upperclassmen are praying 
for the same, but their motives are slightly different. They are praying (1) out 
of sympathy for the freshmen, or (2) out of genuine school spirit, or (3) be- 
cause such a victory will probably mean an extra day of Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. . . 

The season's biggest school dance, the L Club dance, with everything from 
the all-alumni orchestra to the decorations and refreshments approaching per- 
fection. Congratulations, fellows. . . 

A football game (with Gettysburg) in which we could all be proud of our 
team, this time not for their usual win over the opposition, but for the spunk 
they displayed in playing on against great odds. . . 

Many Rush Week activities, ranging from hikes and teas, to kangaroos and 
paddles. However, more is yet to come. 

And now, in the near future, you'll be seeing: 

A well-organized County Fair, with the usual booths and games, plus the 
faculty auction, and a dance with music by the Collegiennes. Albright students 
will be our guests, so let's show them our usual hospitality and school spirit. 
All this, plus a big pep rally, will take place Friday (tomorrow) beginning at 
7:30 p.m. . . 

A Parents' Day neither we nor our parents will soon forget, next weekend, 
November 14. Moms and Dads will see typical lectures, an L. V. C. football 
game, and a variety show and one-act play. The day is full and well-planned, 
so let's all help make it a success. . . 

And then, of course, in just two and a half weeks, Thanksgiving vacation. 
Upperclassmen can testify that, after you're over that hump, the first semester 
is almost gone, so take hope, one and all, vacation days will soon be here! 


The Conserv Formal Dinner and 
Dance is being held on December 12 
at the Blueridge Country Club near 
Linglestown. This is the same place 
it was held last year, but since then 
extensive decorations have taken place, 
including the enlargement of the main 
dining and dance hall. The committee 
which is taking care of the arrangements 
for this affair is composed of two 
members from each class: Sylvia Wolf- 
skill and Bill Lutz, seniors; Lois Reedy 
and Joel Wiest, juniors; Gloria Ritter 
and Don Griffith, sophomores; and 
Doris Kane and Jerry Lego, Frosh. The 
menu and orchestra for this occasion 
will be announced at a later time. 
* * * * 

The conservatory's primary concern 
now is to rehearse and present a suc- 
cessful musical show so that the ex- 
pense of each individual ticket for the 
formal can be reduced. This show, 
commonly known as the Conserv Bene- 
fit, will be given on Tuesday, Novem- 
ber 24, the evening before Thanksgiving 
vacation begins. If you haven't already 

tried out for a part in this production, 
come to the next rehearsal and display 
your talents. If you do not have any 
time to attend rehearsals, you can pro- 
mote the show by selling tickets to col- 
lege students, faculty, parents, and 
Annville residents. You can be an 
usher the evening the affair is given if 
you aren't in the cast. But don't just 
sit there and do nothing. Make this 
show a part of you, by being a part of 
it. Remember, this performance is 
for the benefit of your financial status. 
Let's make this year's show the greatest 
Conserv Benefit ever given at L. V. C.

We'd like to send our congratulations 
to Edith (nee Shanamann) and Harold 
Rothenberger on the arrival of their 
new son. Both parents are former 

While we're on the subject, we'd also 
like to congratulate Carol Johnstone, 
who last week joined the ranks of the

Hallowe'en has come and gone but not without the usual masquerading! 
At the Philo-Clio Dance, last Saturday night students appeared in many various 

Prizes were awarded to the "Two Swammees" — Grace Gorbey and 
Georganne Funk. They caused a great deal of excitement and speculation as 
they refused dances with boys and girls alike. The "Swammees," dressed in 
sheets with towels around their heads and scarves over their faces, avoided 
everyone, and were even chased into the hall of the gym as they tried to make 
a "get-away." 

Many of us recalled last year's Hallowe'en dance when Gloria Ritter kept 
everyone guessing when she arrived as a paper bag. 

Bill Schmeed was awarded the boy's prize for dressing as a hobo. And 
he really looked like a bum, with Barry Franciscus' help. 

Newspaper reporter Bob Krieg brought his "paper," Jeanie Lowery, along 
with him to the dance. 

The "red witch" was Carol Dannettell, dressed in a red dress, red witch 
hat and red gloves and shoes. 

Wilbur Priester was attired in a pirate's outfit, including the patch over 
the eye, which he finally removed so he could see his "red witch." 

A bikini bathing suit would have been Mary Jane Kern's choice of costume. 
That would have caused quite a little interest, especially on the part of the stag 

Jan Walker said she'd go as a "groom and let my boy friend go as a bride. 
Don't you think he'd make a beautiful bride?" 

The "Bermuda shorts" — attired frosh and young Co-ed were Harry Hall 
and his girl. 

"I'll wear a pumpkin for a head," was Betty Jane Swisher's reply when 
asked how she'd masquerade. 

As for myself, I think I should have worn my tall, pointed hat and grabbed 
West Hall's well-worn broom and gone for a ride.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 5, 1953 









by Lucie Portier '54 

Last week a friend of mine, well aware 
of my impatient desire to visit France, 
and most particularly Paris, chided me 
that I merely wished to get outside the 
conventional attitudes of Annville to a 
city where it is normal — or at least where 
more people consider it normal — to sit at 
a sidewalk cafe and, with a group of 
intellectual Bohemians, spend the day 
talking, criticizing, and promoting one's 
own pet theories of life, love, and art. 

Contrary to my usual ridiculing of his 
theory, I agreed, adding that I would 
enjoy spending several hours in just such 
a way here on campus, but was unable 
to find many people so inclined. My 
friend agreed; and, simultaneously, both 
of us asked "Why?" In fairness, how- 
ever, we decided to ask several others 
if they have observed the same lack of 
"philosophers' circles" — we call those 
bull sessions in the dorm. We queried 
older students, last year's frosh, our 
friends, and even faculty; and, unfortu- 
neatly, the answer was the same: "Few- 
er or no bull sessions." 

It cannot be a lack of room, for the 
library is not yet so formidable that stu- 
dents cannot congregate on the steps, 
in the conference rooms, or around the 
circular radiator in the back. On campus 
neither the lounge or the gym is closed 
to students — it's ludicrous to think that 
dorm quiet hours could restrain such a 
group — and off campus we have Hot 
Dog's, the Astoria, the Co-ed, and the 
Hotel, whose managers have always been 
very indulgent toward conversation 

Perhaps, we thought, the profs are 
keeping the students too busy. But some 
of the best discussions I can remember 
have begun with a common gripe against 
some prof who always manages to spoil 
our plans by a special assignment. Be- 
sides, isn't such a group often the best 
way of dealing with such assignments? 

The theory that the students might not 
disagree is ridiculing — some one is sure 
to prefer long to short skirts, Jose Ferrar 
over Jerry Lewis, classical over swing, 
or Rembrandt over Picasso, and, of 
course, we can always argue politics and 
religion. No, Valleyites will always have 
something to argue about. 

We considered, albeit briefly, the the- 
ory that Valleyites did not have opin- 
ions. Is it possible students have begun 
to accept that which they are told? It is 
possible that with the bandying of such 
terms as "radical," "progressive," and 
"socialist," on the national level students 
are hesitant about expressing their ideas 
— I purposely did not say beliefs — be- 
cause they are afraid of being labeled. 
Let's remember that it is an entirely 
different thing to discuss ideas and the- 
ories than to adopt them. For those 
who still shun strange ideas, let's re- 
member that a person who knows the 
history and effects of ideas is not likely 
to be taken in by false teaching or teach- 

We spent a thoroughly enjoyaole hour 
discussing the situation; of course, we 
reached no definite decision. We would, 
nontheless, like to know of any theories 
which might explain the situation. If, 
perchance, you consider this entire opin- 
ion to be false and would like to argue it 
out either with us or among yourselves, 
please let us know. We will be pleased — 
and relieved — to know that the bull ses- 
sion is not disappearing from the Valley 

"The Male Animal" 
Rates Commendation 

The enjoyment of Lebanon Valley's 
Homecoming, October 23 and October 
24, was heightened by Wig and Buckle's 
performance of "The Male Animal" 
on Friday and Saturday nights. The 
three-act comedy, by James Thurber 
and Elliot Nugent, was ably directed 
by Dr. Charles Sloca, professor of 
English, and performed by members of 
Wig and Buckle Dramatics Club at 

Leading roles were played by Tom 
Wolfgang as Tommy Turner, professor 
at a mid-western university, and Joan 
Rosenberry Myers as Ellen Turner, his 
wife. Other members of the cast in- 
cluded Darlene Moyer as Patricia Stan- 
ley, Ellen's sister; Clair Kelly as Wally 
Myers, the university halfback; Bruce 
Thompson as Michael Barnes, Mid- 
western's over-enthusiastic newspaper 
editor; Richard Besecker as Dean Fred- 
erick Damon, and Dorothy Roudabush 
as his small but commanding wife; 
David Jauss as Joe Ferguson, one of 
Midwestern's former football stars, who 
returns for a weekend and almost 
wreaks havoc upon the Turner house- 
hold; Charles Roseberry as a college 
trustee, Ed Keller; and Leah Thorpe as 
Myrtle Keller; Patricia Oyer as the 
maid, Cleota; Pius Kaltreider as "Nutsy" 
Miller, and Calvin Wacker as a news- 
paper reporter. 

Trouble begins when Joe Ferguson 
returns to his Alma Mater for a week- 
end and attempts to rekindle an old 
romance with Mrs. Turner. The plot 
is complicated by Michael Barnes, who 
involves Professor Turner and the 
bigoted Ed Keller in a dispute over a 
newspaper article in which Michael 
praises Professor Turner for his intention 
to read a disputed article by Vanzetti. 
After becoming very complex, the situa- 
tion is resolved; the Turner household 
is restored to order, and the letter proves 
to be merely a harmless illustration of 
broken but effective English. 

The production was attended by a 
large number of students, friends, and 
alumni; and the group played to an 
especially receptive audience Saturday 

The club's next performance will be 
"Riders to the Sea" by John Millington 
Synge on November 14. A Christmas 
play will be presented December 9, 
and the concluding performance of 
the year will be Lillian Hellman's "The 
Little Foxes" on February 27. 

Seniors Participate 
In Personality Study 

"Are you afraid of the water?" "Did 
you ever feel like leaving home?" "Do 
you enjoy crowded social gatherings?" 
"Do you sometimes feel that you've 
been given a 'raw deal' in life?" 

These are echoes from a test given to 
the members of the Senior Class who 
were required to participate in a Study 
of Personality Characteristics in Ameri- 
can Trained Talent. This testing is 
being done at the request of the Com- 
mission on Human Resources for Ad- 
vanced Training. 

The test was administered by Dean 
Howard M. Kreitzer in Engle Hall. It 
was made up of three different sections 
— preference, verbal ability and reason- 
ing with abstracts, and personal bio- 
graphical data. In spite of the fact 
that the duration of the test exceeded 
two hours, the seniors are grateful for 
the opportunity of participating in this

and he would like to minor in philoso- 
phy if he had the time ... In public 
he is very shy ... As well as being 
extremely good looking, he is exceed- 
ingly lucky. At times he is so thought- 
ful it seems that he will not forget a 
single thing that is really important. 

He is a neat dresser and usually wears 
his fraternity pin (it's kind of like 
bait that never comes off the hook). 
He goes to church almost every Sun- 
day, and always on Christmas eve. He 
never signs his picture when he gives 
it to a girl — he's clever that way . . . 
And he's formed the habit of saying, 
"I love you" as though he were asking 
for a cigarette.

I could dream of him for hours. One 
gentle kiss would start my dream-world 
spinning. Yes ... I suppose that is 
why I don't remember much about 
the tenderness and grief that he once 
brought to me. For his type is like a

and life itself . . . when it is no longer 
there no amount of rhapsodizing will 
make the ashes warm again.

of it. Within a few minutes after the 
first pull it was all tied up as the Fresh- 
men pulled the Sophomores out of 
their holes like seeds out of a squashed 

The final pull will stand out in the 
memory of everybodys' who watched it 
as an epic of frustration for both sides. 
After wallowing around like baby whales 
in the cold Quittie in a mighty free-for- 
all between the second and third pulls, 
both sides looked as if they needed a 
warm shower and a nice soft bed in- 
stead of another long, hard pull. How- 
ever it was not to be. The epic pull 
started with the Freshmen obtaining a 
slight advantage as they managed to 
get a bit of extra rope on their side. 
Then for the next half hour neither 
side could gain an inch. Even upper- 
classmen standing over the straining 
participants with bull whips chanting 
The Song of the Volga Boatmen like 
the foremen on a Roman slave galley, 
did nothing to gain a concrete advantage 
for either side. All in all, however, 
it was a magnificent picture of superbly 
conditioned manhood doing his utmost 
to gain victory for his side. Even when 
it was decided to end the stalemate at 
eleven o'clock if nobody had triumphed 
by that time, the straining men in the 
pits pleaded to be allowed to continue. 
A Freshmen participant, his breath 
coming in painful gasps shouted, "I'll 
die before I put on that (censored) 
dink again." By this time his (cen- 
sored) dink was merrily floating down 
the creek along with the numerous 

However, the witching hour finally 
approached wherein a mad scramble 
ensued as students on both shores 
grabbed the rope in an effort to gain 
at least a moral victory. The Freshmen 
shore won, which brought about the 
assumption by a few misguided souls 
that dinks and ties were off. The con- 
test was declared officially a tie and 
every one wearily crawled off except 
a few who had to be carried. The 
war was ended for another year.

The "L" Men 

Homecoming Day Fans See Dutchmen 

Fight For Victory Over Moravian 


The speedy and high kicking legs of At home on the track field, "D's" spe- 

Don DeBenedett have fortunately been cialties are the 220 and 100. Don, in his 

transported from Montclair High School sophomore year, tied a record established 

to the Lebanon Valley College campus, at the Valley in 1915 by running 100 

A football and track star in his high yards in the very rare time of 10 flat, 
school days, Don has likewise starred in 

both these sports at LVC 

On the gridiron "D" is an agile, hard 
driving left half back. He can be counted 
on for consistent yard gaining on the 
ground and is frequently found on the 
end of Lou Sorrentino's passes. His re- 
markable speed has been of particular 
importance this year on defense, enabling 
him to catch up with would-be touch- 
down runs. 

Don, at the age of 21, stands an im- 
pressive 5 foot 10 inches, 175 pounds. 
A very popular guy on campus, "D" was 
duly honored last year by being voted 
Mr. LVC. A major in English, Don has 
no immediate plans other than the army 
next year and a not too distant marriage 
to his fiance, Jackie Fetterhof, recently 
crowned Football Queen. 


The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen 
won their third victory in five attempts 
this season in a driving rainstorm as 
they squeezed past an aroused Mora- 
vian eleven, 19-18, on the basis of 
one extra point. In the rain and mud 
the superior forces of the Dutchmen 
were slowed down, while the Grey- 
hounds capitalized on a fumble and in- 
tercepted pass to score two quick touch- 
downs. However, the Dutchmen, as 
they have done twice before this season, 
came back to win. 

Moravian seemed to have everything 
its own way through most of the first 
half as it jarred the ball loose from the 
Lebanon Valley backs time and time 
again. Mugavero of Moravian, late in 
the first quarter, recovered two valley 
fumbles, the second one of which led 
to the Greyhound's first score. The 
first fumble was recovered on the 
Moravian 49 yard line. Failing to ad- 
vance the ball, the Greyhounds kicked 
to Lebanon Valley's 16 where Mugavero 
grabbed the second fumble. This time 
Moravian was not to be denied. The 
whole Greyhound backfield teamed up 
to go the remaining distance with Marsh 
scoring from the one yard line on the 
first play of the second quarter. The 
kick was no good, but Moravian lead 
6-0. Not content to rest on their 
laurels, the Greyhound's eleven went 
into action almost immediately follow- 
ing the kickoff. Kemmer intercepted a 
Sorrentino pass on Lebanon Valley's 31 
and began another drive. A Marsh 
to Gawley pass put the ball on the 
Dutchmen 15. On the next play inter- 
ference was called on another Marsh 
pass which put the ball on the one. 

After being temporarily set back by a 
5 yard penalty, Kemmer plunged over 
two plays later from the 3 to score the 
second touchdown. The only consola- 
tion the sodden Valley diehards got was 
that the extra point was missed. Mora- 
vian lead 12-0 and it looked bad for 
the Dutchmen. 

The confident Greyhounds kicked off 
to the Valley, secure in the knowledge 
that in the rain and mud the Dutchmen 
could never hope to overtake them. 
However, it was a badly shaken Grey- 
hound team that lined up on the fol- 
lowing play. For Dick Musselman 
took the ball on his own 15 yard line 
and, behind some murderous interfer- 
ence, raced 73 yards to the Greyhound 
12. From there Dick smashed up to 
the 6 whereupon Lou Sorrentino took 
matters into his own hands as he 
raced around right end for the first 
Valley score. Then he added what 
was subsequently to be the winning 
marker when he made an underhanded 
shovel pass to Frank Ritrievi for the 
extra point. The Valley still trailed 
12-7. The Greyhounds make a valient 
effort just before half time to get that 
touchdown back. A last desperation 
field goal failed as the half ended with 
the Valley still in striking distance. 


The third quarter started off on a 
high note as the Dutchmen scored the 
first time that they got the ball. Lou 
Sorrentino took to the air as he com- 
pleted passes to Don DeBenedett and 
Dick Musselman which put the ball on 
the Moravian 20. Then a Sorrentino 

to DeBenedett pass was deflected into 
the hands of Musselman who took the 
ball to the Greyhound 6. From there 
Dick cracked over on two plays to 
score. Sorrentino's kick was no good, 
but Valley led 13-12. However, before 
Moravian scored to again take the lead, 
a Valley punt, partially blocked, gave 
the ball to Moravian on the Lebanon 
Valley 28. Then with Weaver, Ken- 
mer and Wichaiser sparking the attack, 
the Greyhounds scored on four plays 
with Weaver plunging over from the 
3. The kick was no good, so the grey- 
hounds only led by five points as the 
third period ended. 

However, this time the Dutchmen 
were not to be denied. As soon as 
they took the kickoff, Sorrentino began 
to pass. Passes to Doug Miller and 
Frank Retrievi took the ball to the 
Moravian 30 yard line. Then Sorrentino 
decided to go the remaining distance 
on the ground. He ripped runs of 21, 
11, and 4 yards to carry the ball into 
pay dirt for the final score of the day. 
From then on the Valley defense tight- 
ened and the Greyhounds were unable 
to move for the remainder of the game. 

From now on, however, the going 
gets rough with Albright and Western 
Maryland coming up. A win over 
both of these clubs would mark a very 
successful season indeed.

Gettysburg Swamps 
Valley Eleven; 
Aided By Passes 

Lebanon Valley's Dutchmen lost their 
second game of the season last Friday 
night as they were crushed by the 
Gettysburg Bullets in the annual Ki- 
wanis Bologna Bowl Game, 60-19. 
From the start it was no contest. On 
the third play from scrimmage after 
the Dutchmen had kicked off, Frank 
Gagliardi passed to Joe Ujobai for the 
Bullets' first touchdown on a 67 yard 
pass play. Not long after, they scored 
again. After an interception of a Sor- 
rentino pass by Gagliardi on the Leb- 
anon Valley 40, the Bullets scored. 
A Gagliardi to Jacobi pass put 
the ball on the Valley one where 
Ujobai went over. The point was miss- 
ed this time and Gettysburg lead, 13-0. 
As soon as they got the ball again, 
Gettysburg made it 20-0 with a Gag- 
liardi to Hemberger pass play climax- 
ing a 48 yard drive. 

It was at this point that the Dutch- 
men scored their first touchdown. A 
long pass from Sorrentino to Paul 
Snyder put the ball on the Gettysburg 
7. Another pass to Dick Musselman 
took it to the one where Sorrentino 
plunged for the score. Unfortunately 
the Bullets got the touchdown back 
immediately. On the first play from 
scrimmage, Ernest Paliszeuski ran 54 
yards for the Bullets' fourth touch- 
down. Shortly after the first quarter 
ended with the Bullets leading 27-6. 

The game got no better in the sec- 
ond quarter. Gettysburg scored two 
touchdowns to the Valley's none. The 
first one came as a result of an 89 
yard drive culminating in a Gagliardi 
to Ujobai pass from the 29 yard line 
for the score. The other one came 
shortly before the end of the half as 
Gettysburg drove from their own 44 
in nine p'ays with Ujobai (not him 
again!) driving the last seven yards. 
Therefore, at the half it was Gettysburg 
39, Lebanon Valley 6. 

In the second half the Dutchmen 
got up a small head of steam and ac- 
tually outcored the Bullets in the third 


quarter. Gettysburg scored first as 
Gagliardi intercepted a Sorrentino pass 
and two plays later passed to Ujobai 
for the score. Then the Dutchmen 
went into action. Dick Musselman 
ran from his own 27 to the Bullets 
31 and three plays later plunged for 
the score from the 5. Immediately 
after the kickoff, Sorrentino intercept- 
ed a pass on the Lebanon Valley 38. 
Then passes by Musselman, Snyder, 
and Miller brought the ball to the 
Gettysburg 4 where a plunge by De- 
Benedett and Snyder, the latter going 
over for the touchdown, brought the 
score up to 46-19 at the end of the 
third period. From then on, however, 
it was all Gettysburg — even when they 
put in their second team. Their final 
touchdown came on an 83 yard drive 
with Soltecz plunging from the 2. The 
deluge was over.

Irene Urian Named To 
Intercollegiate Hockey Team 

Four members of the girl's hockey 
team of Lebanon Valley College gained 
honors in the All-College tournament 
held here on October 31. Gail Edgar, 
center halfback, and Mary Lou Young, 
left full back, received honorable men- 
tion; Evelyn Eby, right half back, was 
chosen for the second team. Lebanon 
Valley is to be represented on the first 
team by Irene Urian, left half back. This 
tournament was the first of a series 
which results in the selection of the All 
American team. The first and second 
teams which were chosen on Saturday 
will participate in the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Tournament on November 7 at 
Bucknell University. 

Emily Clements, L. V. C.'s representa- 
tive to the first team last year, was not 
able to compete because of an injury re- 
ceived in the game with Moravian. 

Other colleges represented at this tour- 
nament were Lock Haven State Teachers' 
College, Bucknell University, and Al- 
bright College. Miss Betty Bowman, 
girls' hockey coach, was responsible for 

the organization of the All College Tour- 

Thus far this year the team has played 
four games with Gettysburg, Millersville, 
Shippensburg and Moravian. Though 
winless thus far, with scores of 4-1, 4-2, 
5-3, 2-0, respectively, the girls and coach 
are looking forward to a better showing 
in the remaining games. These include 
Elizabethtown on November 10, and 
Harrisburg Hockey Club on November 

The girls played Albright Nov. 3, and 
lost, 2-0. The usual lineup consists of the 
following: right wing, Lois Reedy; right 
inner, Audrey Da Costa; center forward, 
Sandy Nelson; left inner, Shirley Heiz- 
man; left wing, Joanne Young; right half, 
Evelyn Eby; center half, Gail Edgar; 
left half, Irene Urian; right full, Pat 
Greenjack; left full, Mary Lou Young; 
and goal keeper, Emily Clements. The 
substitutes include Dot Book, Ruth Ann 
Kelchner, Shirley Warfel, Lynette Waller, 
Kathie Dotts, Carole Fox, and Arlene 
Reynolds, who has played in two of the 

Muhlenberg Mules 
Foil Fox-Men, 39-14 

The Mules of Muhlenberg kicked their 
heels and butted the Dutchmen of Leba- 
non Valley to the tune of 39-14. The 
second period proved the big difference 
as Muhlenberg racked up five of their 
six touchdowns in that disastrous frame. 

The Valley, however, took a tempor- 
ary lead in the first period by a 7 to 
score. Ed Hutchko recovered a fumble 
on the Muhlenberg 21. Then a pass 
from Lou Sorrentino to Paul Snyder set 
up the score; Lou on the next play sneak- 
ed into six point territory from the three 
and then place kicked the extra one. 

After Jim Skidmore of Muhlenberg 
evened up the score with a brilliant 
touchdown run, the Mules broke the 
game wide up with the aid of fumbles 
and interceptions. At half itme the score 
stood 32 to 7. 

The Dutchmen, guided by the passing 
arm of Lou Sorrentino, came back in the 
third period with an aerial attack cover- 
ing 75 yards. The TD pass went from 
Lou to Snyder and for the second time 
Lou kicked the extra point.

later in Washington, D.C., just as the

Students to Stage Fizzle Follies" 
Based on Broadway Musicals 

Pat Satterthwaite and Bill Lutz, as the 

romantic leads; Jane Smith and Ronnie 
Moseman, as the comedy leads; and Ber- 
nie Shaak, playing the role of the produc- 
tion director, will star in the Conserva- 
tory Benefit Show, "The Fizzle Follies of 
'53." This musical show, which was writ- 
ten and produced by conservatory stu- 
dents, will be staged on November 24 at 
8 p.m. in Engle Hall. 

The production was written in two 
parts. The first scene is the final rehear- 
sal for the "greatest musical review ever 
to hit Broadway," and the second scene 
is the actual show, which is titled "The 
Fizzle Follies of '53." The plot evolves 
around the entanglement of the love life 
of the four principal characters. The 
entire production contains twenty music- 
al numbers, most of them being taken 
from the musical shows, "Good News," 
"Me and Juliet," and "Kiss Me Kate." 
The selections are rendered in various 
Ways. Some of them are solo and duet 
numbers performed by the leads, others 
are ensemble song and dance routines, 
and five of them are big production num- 
bers using the entire cast. Members of 
the Lebanon Valley College Glee Club 
compose the chorus and a twelve-piece 
band, directed by John Kurzenknabe, 
Provide the accompaniments for all of 
l be selections. 

Pat Satterthwaite and Bill Lutz have 
Written the script for this musical show. 
The dances have been taught by Jane 
Smith, and the lighting effects have been 
Worked out by Jack Goodman, the tech- 
nical director. The entire production is 
directed by Bill Lutz. 

Director of Conserv 
Attends Convention 

Miss Mary E. Gillespie, director of the 
Conservatory of Music, at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, will be attending the Twen- 
ty-Ninth Annual Meeting of the National 
Association of Schools of Music this 
week. Sessions are being held at the 
Palmer House in Chicago, Illinois, on 
November 27, 28 and 29. Over two hun- 
dred of the nation's leading music edu- 
cators representing schools of music, col- 
leges and universities will be in attend- 
ance. In addition to being the official 
representative of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, Miss Gillespie is a member of the 
nominating committee for officers next 

The National Association of Schools of 
Music was founded in 1924 by a small 
group of leading schools in an effort to 
solve many of the problems then con- 
fronting music educators. Today, its po- 
sition in the educational field is such that 
the newly formed National Committee 
in Accrediting has designated the NASM 
as the association responsible for the 
approval of music standards on a nation- 
al basis. Lebanon Valley College has 
been a member of the National Associa- 
tion since 1941. 

Highlights on the agenda include a 
symposium on "Literature and Mate- 
rials," headed by Dr. William Schuman,

Head Football Coach 
Resigns From Post 

Richard E. Fox surprised the whole 
Lebanon Valley campus by resigning as 
head football coach. Dick, who took 
over two years ago, succeeding Ralph 
"Dutch" Ricker, won nine games during 
his tenure while losing only five. A grad- 
uate of Temple University, Dick came 
here as a line coach under Andy Kerr 
and stayed in that capacity under Ricker 
until the latter took a more lucrative po- 
sition at Penn State. Dick, although no 
longer football coach, will remain at his 
position of coach of the junior varsity 
basketball team and assistant professor 
of economics, at least until the end of the 
academic year. 

"This was no snap decision on my 
part," said Fox. "I was thinking of resign- 
ing even befoer the season started." How- 
ever, only a few of the faculty members 
and other intimate friends knew of this 
decision until this Wednesday afternoon.

Thanksgiving Day: What It Means 
And How It Is Celebrated 

Thanksgiving Day is universal. It is observed by everyone, regardless of 
race, creed or religion. To different people Thanksgiving means different 
things. These meanings differ even inside an individual religion. As a means 
of showing this, we have taken a cross sampling of meanings of Thanksgiving 
Day from various students and faculty members from different backgrounds at 
Lebanon Valley College. Most of those who were interviewed took a more 
serious view of Thanksgiving Day. Here are their answers: 

Dr. Sparks: Thanksgiving is one of life's supreme joys. It arises within, 
spills where it will, and keeps on flowing because the Creator withholds not 
His love and inspires others to do likewise. 

Prof. Sloca: It is the one day of the year when people awaken to the 
fact that life constantly provides something for which to be thankful. 

'Hazel Davis: A time to give thanks to God for all our blessings. 

Marion Marcus: A chance to give thanks for everything I have, and that's 
a darn lot, too. 

Grace Gorby: A time for prayer and a time to give thanks for every- 
thing we have. 

George Ludwig: A day that is set aside lest we forget to give thanks. 

Dick Shover: A time when, if no other time at all, you should stop and 
think just why you should be thankful. 

John Gianelli: A time for recollecting and being thankful for the many 
benefits that we enjoy here in America. 

Nancy Kirby: A time to give thanks for everything we have. We should 
give thanks all the time, but we should really show it at this one certain time. 

Bob Walker: A day of reunion, meditation, and happiness followed by 
a festive celebration. 

Bill Gorgone: A day on which we should be thankful for the gallant ef- 
forts of our ancestors at Plymouth Rock. 

Polly Risser: A time to catch up on being thankful for the things we 
should have been thankful for all year round. 

Herb Finkelstein: A day which in itself stands for a feeling of gratitude 

and devotion to the Almighty One who created us. Thanksgiving Day should 

be every day in our lives. If this were true, there would be less hate, strife, 
and antagonism in the world. 

Harry Hall: A time of thankfulness for what we have and what we have 
been able to achieve. 

Ruth McFarland: Five whole days of peace of mind and something to 
really give thanks for. 

Sam Yeagley: A time when we should be thankful to our ancestors for 
establishing the foundation of the American way of life. 

Janese Howard: The idea of Thanksgiving should be observed thorughout 
the year. 

Some of the other students looked at the lighter side of the holiday, an- 
ticipating a pleasant vacation. Their replies follow: 

Pris Thomas: The true meaning is very serious, but right now it means 
it will be wonderful to get home, see my family and friends, and get a much 
needed rest. 

Diane Kohr: Simonizing Bess and visiting Auds. 

Rita Jean Castiglia: Going home, being with the gang and having a good 


Cal Walters: A vacation and lots of sleep. 

Don DeBenedett: A break from the books, a good meal, see my family, 
buddies, and a good football game. 

Nathalie Davis: Five whole days of vacation. 

Sleepy Weber: A nice good meal and a little vacation. 

Dick Sparks: When all the boys are home. (Pa-tee) 

Lou Sorrentino: Usually a day that I get a chance to watch my high school 
play and also, a day with the family. 

Dolly Longenecker: This year it will give me a chance to relax and see 
"you know who." 

Clair Kelly: Four days to work and earn some money. 
Masami Uchida: A vacation. 
Shirley Walker: I'll see Glenn again. 

Ink Spots 
From Green Blotter 


It was two minutes after five and there 
I was walking down the street after a 
stinker of a day. I was hurrying along 
for no good reason and wearing that 
blank stare that usually accompanies deep 
thought. One might say I was in the 
middle of disproving one of Einstein'* 
theories, but I'd say I was probably 
thinking about how much my profs know 
and how little I know. I think the latter 
one is true because the former is just too 
much on an empty stomach. Every now 
and then I found the strength to look up, 
nod, and smile at people I know, especial- 
ly if I bumped into them. Then I'd take a 
firmer grip on my briefcase and go back 
to thinking of myself as the sacrificed 
animal of modern education. I was just 
preparing to burn on the stake for the 
second time that block when a voice 
prevented me from becoming a martyr — 
Charles d'Arch. 

"Hiyah, Charlie," the voice rang out, 
how're you doing? How's school treat- 
ing you?" 

"Hiyah, Bob," I said without thinking 
too much about the question. 

"How're you doing?" he asked again 
as he came over toward my side of the 
sidewalk. I could see that he wanted an 

"How am I doing?" I repeated to my- 
self sort of taken back by the question. 
Well, I'm a college student, and I ought 
to be able to think of some clever an- 
swer. Maybe I can outline some sort of 
answer: statement of thesis — the purpose 
of this speech is to describe how I am 
doing. Roman numeral one; I am not 
doing so hot; points A, B. C. D. E, and F 
respectively: I'll be doing homework for 
six more hours tonight, I'm dead tired, I 
have three books to read, two speeches 
to make, two term papers due soon and 
no material for them, and a meeting 
to go to tonight. Roman numeral two. . . 
Well, I'll try something else. I could say 
something about school really being a 
full time job. Then he'd say: 

"What are you taking up?" 

"Education," I'd answer. 

"Oh, you're going to become a teach- 


"There's no money in that. Why don't 
you become a doctor?" 

No, it wouldn't be so good to say 
that because it would involve a whole 
discussion and I'm in a hurry, I think. 
Of course I could ignore the whole prob- 
lem and start something new. Let's see, 
I could ask him if he went to the game 
Saturday night and he'd probably answer 
"no." Then we'd be back to the same 
startling question. On second thought he

The Secretary 


Action taken by the Student-Faculty 
Council at its November 5 meeting 
proved that the position of Student- 
Faculty Council representative is a 
responsible one with the definite obli- 
gation of attending SFC meetings and 
that failure to fulfill this obligation may 
have serious consequences. 

The recommendation was made and 
passed that Robert Krieg should no 
longer be the Philo representative at 
SFC meetings because he has failed to 
attend three consecutive meetings of 
SFC. A letter has been sent to Philo's 
advisor, Professor Carl Y. Ehrhart, 
informing him of the vacancy created 
by Krieg's dismissal and advising Philo 
to appoint a new representative. 

A motion was made and passed to the 
effect that a section should be reserved 
in the gymnasium for the student body 
and faculty at home basketball games. 

A constitution of the newly-organized 
Legionnaires Club (veterans club) on 
campus was submitted to the Constitu- 
tion Committee. 

Representatives to Student-Faculty 
Council — did you remember to fulfill 
your obligation last night? 


So many events are coming up in the near future for us conservites! The 
first thing on the agenda is the Fizzle Follies of '53, the Conserv Benefit show, 
which is being staged on November 24 in Engle Hall at 8 p.m. I can tell by the 
enthusiasm of the performers and the directors that this production will be 
tops. Those of you who are not in the show should support your colleagues 
by selling just as many tickets as you possibly can. Contact your parents, 
your college friends, your professors, and the people from Annville and the 
surrounding communities. Let's see if we can fill all the seats in Engle Hall 
and have people standing in the aisles. 

On December 3 and 4 Mr. Stachow will be lecturing and demonstrating 
the woodwinds down in North Carolina. I think it's a real tribute to Mr. 
Stachow personally and also to the Conserv to have him invited to perform at 
such a clinic. Also on December 3 and 4, the P. M. E. A. is holding its state 
music convention at Harrisburg. Seniors, don't forget to sign up for the 
banquet given by the In and About Club of H-burg. 

The Conserv Formal Dinner and Dance will be held on December 12 at 
the Blue Ridge County Club at Linglestown, which is just a few miles from 
Harrisburg. Since this is always a big affair for all Conservites, I hope most 
of you will plan to attend. Incidentally, it's not too early to ask for a date. 

Congratulations to those who participated in the show in Engle Hall for 
Parents' Day. Many nice compliments have been heard from various persons. 
Everyone in the show did a fine job and we're sure the Conservatory is proud 
of you. This show highlighted a very effective Parents' Day at L. V. C. 

Joyce Snyder and Frank Mulheron opened the show with a piano-organ 
duet. This was very interesting and also effective. 

Second on the show were Marian Fortna and Bruce Thompson doing a 
delightful dance to the tune "Someone to Watch Over Me." 

The Trepak dance was certainly enjoyed by all who watched it. Here we 
saw a college student, Darlene Moyer, doing the dance, while a group from 
the Conservatory sang. Lucille Hamstead was the accompanist. 

The Symphonette appeared on the stage next, playing the Water Music Suite 
by Handel-Harty. They are a fine group and Ronnie Steele does an excellent 
job of conducting them. We're quite sure we will be hearing a lot more of 
them in the future. 

"When I Have Sung My Songs," and "Time Was, When I in Anguish Lay" 
were the two songs which Ben Lutz sang. Ben has a fine tenor voice and 
everyone enjoys hearing him sing. Marian Fortna accompanied him. 

Bruce Thompson appeared again, this time as Jane Smith's dancing partner. 
They danced to "Blues in the Night" and it was very effective. 

Last but not least was the one-act play "Riders To The Sea" by John 
Millington Synge. The audience was so attentive during this performance that 
"you could have heard a pin drop" in the auditorium. Those in the play were 
Joan Myers, Darlene Moyer, Doris Kane, and Clair Kelly. (Clair played a 
double role.) 

Congratulations to Major and Mrs. Paul Ulrich of 1002 E. Division St., 
Dover, Delaware, upon the arrival of their new daughter Nancy Elizabeth on 
November 11. Mrs. Ulrich was the former Elizabeth Bender. Both Major 
and Mrs. Ulrich graduated from the Conservatory of Music in 1938. 

Pinky's Patter 

Looking around campus lately, I've seen several mustaches "cropping out." 
I wonder if this is the product of laziness on the part of some of the gentle- 
men in question, or is it a new fad? Charles Roseberry made a noble attempt 
to raise a mustache to add to his sophistication as a Board of Trustees member 
in the recent Wig and Buckle production of "The Male Animal." Others adding 
to the fad are Henry Chudzikiewiez and Sid Hofing, who are in my opinion, 
more distinguished-looking. All this brought a question to my mind: What do 
people really think of mustaches? 

Betty Criswell thinks that "most men look better without them." And 
Barbara Kreiser uttered "I agree." 

When I confronted Nancy Wolf with the question, she said, "My father 
has one and it looks very nice; but if Stanley raised one, I think I'd divorce 

"They're all right once you get used to them," stated Aaron Sheaffer. I 
wonder to whom he was referring by "you." 

Beverly Ross must have run into one — "They tickle!" 

The statement made by Tom Teates has me confused: "They're all right 
in their place." I wonder . . . 

"I hate them!" Gail Edgar stated forcefully. 

Dave Jauss seemed to speak like an authority as he said, "I think they 
add to the stimulation of kissing!" 

"Uglph!" uttered Mildred Osinski when confronted with the mustache prob- 
lem. (She had to spell it for me.) 

Joanne Hostetter said, "They're the scratchiest things — my father has one." 

Lee Thorpe was in doubt: "I don't know; I've never been kissed by one. 
Anyone volunteering?" Remember, boys, the mustache is the prerequisite! 

According to Henry Hollinger, he's "just a little shaver and doesn't know 
about these things." 

I'm not too well versed on the subject of mustaches. But I do think they 
look like misplaced eye-brows!

Library Receives 
Eleven Letters 
Of Mifflin Family 

Professor O. P. Bollinger recently se- 
cured and presented eleven letters from 
the Lloyd Mifflin estate to the college 
library. The first five letters were written 
between 1795 and 1796 by Nicholas 
Wain, an important American Quaker, 
at the close of the eighteenth century, to 
his wife Sarah. The letters include ex- 
planations concerning his tour of Eng- 
land and his expression of Quaker beliefs 
there. The letters, although few in num- 
ber, reflect the attitudes, ideals, and 
thoughts of the Quakers. 

The remaining six letters dealing with 
various topics were written by the broth- 
ers of the Mifflin family, all successful 
businessmen. Primarily, they concern 
business trends in Philadelphia during the 
close of the eighteenth century. However, 
world trends are also expressed. Among 
the letters are two which discuss the cho- 
lera epidemic in Philadelphia. Of these, 
one goes as far as to express thoughts on 
the care of diet during this era. 

The letters are available for public in- 

Philosophy Symposium 
Is Informal Session 

Two chemistry majors, two English 
majors, two religion majors, and a 
pre-law student met at eight o'clock 
on Monday, November 16 at Professor 
Ehrhart's home for an informal session 
known as Philosophy Symposium. 

This was the first meeting of the 
group for over a year and only a few 
old faces appeared. Discussion, however, 
was not lacking, and, after beginning 
with methods of theological education, 
the group switched to the subject of 
tolerance, which they divided into 
strong and weak tolerance depending 
upon the reason for it, and then to the 
question of moral relativity. The con- 
versation considered logical empiricism, 
and, as the group dwindled to three, 
evaluated the effectiveness of its theory 
in regard to FEPC and racial and reli- 
gious tolerance. 

When will the group meet again? 
Watch the bulletin board.

LVC Inaugurates 
New Math Program 

The mathematics department of Leba-

program designed to meet the growing 
demand for trained engineers and mathe- 
maticians. The whole curriculum has 
ben revamped into an integrated program 
of courses. 

The freshmen who have not had a 
large amount of mathematics in high 
school are now being given a general 
course in mathematics in order to give 
them some feeling for numbers and the 
forking techniques of algebra and trig- 
nometry. The more advanced freshmen 
and pre-engineering students go right into 
a combined course of analytical geometry 
a nd differential and integral calculus. 
This enables them to go on into the 
more highly technical subjects of engi-

When Left Is Ri S ht 

Are you left-handed or right-handed? 
If you are the latter, have you ever 
wondered if people who write left-handed 
are different from other people? 

Among the left-handed students at 
Lebanon Valley this year are the presi- 
dent of Green Blotter Club, the editor of 
the Quittapahiila, and the editor of La 
Vie Collegienne. Notice any resem- 

Janice Walker, president of Green 
Blotter Club, is a senior from Westfield, 
New Jersey. An English major, Jan has 
been a member of this writer's club since 
her freshman year. She served as secre- 
tary last year. She also belongs to the 
French Club and the New Jersey Club. 
Jan was president of West Hall and 
worked on the yearbook in her junior 

She will probably be teaching after 
graduation, although laboratory work in- 
terest her, since she also has a major in 

Good naturedness and witty sayings 
characterize Jan's cheerful personality. 
The expression in the Quittie aptly de- 
scribes the president of Green Blotter as 
"wise with bright sayings." 

The busy editor of the 1955 Quittapa- 
hiila is Herbert Ely, a day student from 
Cleona. Herb, who is a second semester 
junior at present, is a political science 

Besides the editorship of the yearbook, 
Herb's activities on campus include mem- 
bership in the Political Science Club and 
Student Faculty Council. Sports editor 
for La Vie, he also writes the column, 
The "L" Men. 

Having edited a yearbook during his 
prep school days, Herb is well qualified 
for this important position at L.V.C. 
Loyal to his alma mater, Herb uses the 
expression, "small but mighty," to voice 
his feelings about Lebanon Valley. The 
same phrase may well be used to describe 
the Quittie's competent editor. 

La Vie's editor-in-chief is Adora 
Rabiger. Formerly co-editor with Bar- 
bara Ranck, Adora assumed her new po- 
sition with this issue of the newspaper. 
Serving capably as an officer of many 
organizations on campus, Barbara has 
had to resign due to the pressures of 
her numerous activities. Adora says, 
"Barbara has been a fine editor, and I'll 
try to show my appreciation to her by 
continuing to improve La Vie." 

As a sophomore last year, Adora held 
the position of associate editor and in 
her freshman year, exchange editor. In 
both junior and senior high schools she 
edited her school newspaper also. 

An English major, Adora's home is 
Havertown in suburban Philadelphia. At 
Lebanon Valley her activities include 
being secretary to Green Blotter Club 
and corresponding secretary of Clio as 
well as membership on the Quittie staff 
and in the Future Teachers of America. 

Adora is interested in journalism as a 
career, but at present her enthusiasm is 
reflected in her work on La Vie.

form again on Saturday night. 
That was a fine preview they 
gave in the Variety show. 
Do you freshmen still wonder 
about some of the expressions used 
by upperclassmen? The other day 
during a conversation in West 
Hall, one of the frosh asked, "What 
are brownie points?" One of the 
junior girls answered with the 
piquant expression, "Extracurricu- 
lar marks"! 

Ever wonder if good marks in 
college and service in the armed 
forces are related? Remember 
political science major Phil Sel- 
ter who graduated in June? Now 
in the service and stationed at 
Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, 
Phil recently had to take a pol 
sci current events test. College 
experience benefited Phil. He 
got such a good mark on the 
test that he was awarded a 
three-day pass. 
Speaking of alumni, an article 
by David H. Wallace, '50, appeared 
in the October issue of the New 
York Historical Society Quarterly. 
Entitled "The Princess and The 
Bravo" the article tells about a 
sketch drawn by England's Prin- 
cess Victoria in 1836 based on a 
scene from James F e n i m o r e 
Cooper's novel, The Bravo. A his- 
tory major while at LVC, David 
Wallace is now the assistant edi- 
tor of the Quarterly. 

If the first part of the semes- 
ter has left you tired and run- 
down, the thought of an extra 
day of Thanksgiving vacation 
should cheer you up. You'll have 
plenty of time to rest and relax, 
'cause classes don't begin until 
Tuesday morning, December 1 
(instead of Monday, November 
30), due to the kindness of the 
faculty and the success of the 
football team. That Homecoming 
Day victory paid off in more 
ways than one! 

For their December meeting, the 
members of the Green Blotter 
Club have invited Colonel Henry 
W. Shoemaker to be the guest 
speaker. He will talk on the un- 
usual subject, "The Possibilities in 
Pennsylvania for the Aspiring 
Writer." Local alumni are in- 
vited to this meeting. Officers 
of the club this year are Janice 
Walker, Head Scoop (president) 
and Adora Rabiger, Keeper of the 
Word Horde (secretary).

What Price Education? 

From the Carroll News, 
John Carroll University, Ohio 

Education is not a commodity. Not 
being material, it cannot be paid for. 

It is sometimes easy to lose sight 
of this fact among the various charges 
and fees connected with acquisition of 
an education, but its disregard leads 
to a loss of perspective and purpose. 

When you buy coal, you pay by the 
ton — the more you get, the more you 
pay. But when you "buy" an edu- 
cation, you pay one fee — an entrance 
fee . . . The student who gets the most 
from his schooling and the one who 
gets the least pay the same rate. 

This means that a student's educa- 
tion is entirely up to himself. For his 
tuition he receives access to teachers 
and to facilities — not an education but 
the chance to gain an education. 

Education is an unending process. 
Classes, extracurricular activities, out- 
side reading, social events — all can be 
made part of an education. Payment 
of fees confers the right to all of 
these. Their use is up to the in- 

drill and inspections. Anybody 
want to trade places with him? 

La Vie staff also received a let- 
ter from Johnnie recently. We 
are always glad to hear from alum- 
ni and appreciate any news they 
may have. Johnnie says, "It's 
amazing how many people here 
heard of L. V. C. before I met 
them. Take, for instance, my 
platoon; thirty-three guys from all 
over the nation, perhaps one- 
fourth of them from the East. Yet 
half of them, at least, had heard 
of us for one reason or another, 
either because of one of the educa- 
tional departments like the Con- 
serv or the chem department or 
because of our sport records and, 
unbelievably, our school spirit. 
This really makes one feel even 
prouder that he is an L. V. C. 
grad. This year's frosh have really 
been endowed with a great heri- 
tage." Take it from there, Flying 
Dutchmen! Let's keep our school 
spirit flyin' high! 

Remember the articles in 
TIME and NEWSWEEK about 
the younger generation? The 
authors regarded us as very 
silent. Recently in the news- 
paper of another college, we no- 
ticed a retort that said, "We are 
not silent but, rather, thought- 
ful and contemplative." In other 
words, we look before we leap. 
Do you? 

Tri Beta Launches 
Blood Type Program 

Alpha Zeta Chapter of the Beta Beta 
Beta Honorary Biological Society plans 
as one of its projects for this year a 
program for determining the blood type 
and Rh factor for each student and 
faculty member of Lebanon Valley. 
This information will be placed on ap- 
propriate cards for the individual's use. 
Definite plans have not been made yet, 
but the project will probably be carried 
out the first week in January. 

At the November 16 meeting of 
Tri-Beta, J. Loy Packer gave an ex- 
ceptionally interesting talk on snakes. 
He related some very amusing incidents 
which he had while collecting various

presented to the Pennsylvania Academy 
of Science last spring. 

Frances Thomas' Poem 
To Appear In Anthology 


Anticipation reigns lord of dawn 
While rememberances cloud the death. 
Full glory presents its forgiveness, 
But days cease in spite of men. 
Forget and pleasure casts its fog 
And dew dons the golden cup of sun. 
Pieced together darkness gains its tenta- 
tive path 

Yet stars refuse its sheltered side, and 
A skirt of shade protects one from 

But power conviences with falling rain. 

The above poem, by Frances Thomas, 
has been accepted for publication in the 
Annual Anthology of College Poetry. 

Frances, a day student in the junior 
class, is a political science major. She is 
a member of Green Blotter Club, and 
writing poetry is one of her hobbies. 

The Anthology is a compilation of the 
finest poetry written by college men and 
women of America from every section of 
the country. Selections were made from 
thousands of poems submitted. 


La Vie Collegienne, Friday, November 20, 1953 


Like most of my classmates, I counted 
Saturday afternoon as another of my 
"lasts as a student at L.V.C." Most of us 
could do little more than clap, scream, 
and cheer. The players on the field, 
however, played a game which they will 
not only remember each season, but for 
which they will be remembered proudly 
and fondly. Lou Sorrentino, Don De- 
Benedett, Frank Ritrievi, Ed Hutchko, 
Dick Musselman, and Lou Gittleman 
played their last game as their best. 

Not only was the game one of the best, 
but L. V. parents saw Valley at its best 
on what was the best-planned, most ac- 
tion-filled Parents' Day Valley has expe- 
rienced. The spiritually beautiful Chapel 
service, the classes which the parents 
observed, the luncheon in the dormitory 
dining hall, and the well attended, com- 
petently arranged and prepared buffet 
dinner filled Saturday so that with the 
festivity of the football victory and the 
pleasure of the evening's entertainment 
Parents' Day 1953 was a pleasing intro- 
duction for the Frosh and their parents, 
a worthy and memorable event for the 
Seniors and their parents. 

Saturday evening, the audience ap- 
plauded the raising of a curtain — a seem- 
ingly odd object for applause. Our par- 
ents, perhaps, wondered why; perhaps a 
few Frosh wondered also. It is possible 
that those older Valleyites did not have 
an exact reason, but instinctively reacted 
to something which was new — and wel- 
come — to them. To those who have been 
on Valley for a few years, and who have 
been interested in dramatic productions — 
and progress — the Saturday night pro- 
gram was a far cry from anything we 
would have imagined our Freshman year. 
After the Harrisburg Community Thea- 
ter's summer production of Good News, 
a musical in which three of the four 
leads were Valley people, I heard a grad- 
uate regretfully wonder, "Why didn't 
we use the talent we had when T was on 
campus? We never did a show like that." . 
I hope that graduate — and all other ex- 
Valleyites — hear of the show Wig and 
Buckle prepared for Parents' Day. 

Ronald Steele, an ambitious and imag- 
inative musician, and each student in his 
newly formed Symphonette gave parents, 
faculty, and students a surprising and 
pleasing demonstration of student coop- 
eration and musicianship in performing 
the classics. The audience reaction was 
such that quite a few have planned to 
return to hear the complete concert with 
Joyce Snyder as soloist on Saturday, 
November 21. Such a student group is 
new on campus; such a group is welcome 
and needed on campus. 

Stage dancing, student arranged, stu- 
dent done according to their own ideas, 
is a phase of the arts that, despite the 
presence of students, trained and inter- 
ested in the dance has been unfairly 
slighted on campus except just before 
May Day. Saturday we saw three dance 
acts — two by partners, one a solo with 
a vocal accompaniment. The dancing 
may not have been professional, but in 
spite of the technical failings which ex- 
perience will iron out, the desire to ar- 
range costumes and sets and to express 
feelings in motion and the interest that 
brought them on stage are welcome on 
campus. I hope we'll see more of this 
phase of the arts — preferably before May 

Riders to the Sea, considered the best 
one act tragedy of the English-speaking 
theater, was to many m the audience a 
surprising production. I had been "warn- 
ed" rot to expect a representational pre- 
senta 'on and was, therefore, all the more 
curio s to see the play. Frankly, I'm glad 
it was done as a reading. It showed that 
Wig and Buckle considers itself compe- 
tent enough to be able to venture outside 
the conventional mechanics of play pro- 
duction; it shows that Wig and Buckle 
actors are artistically sensitive to the 
value and worth of the face and voice in 
the telling of a story; and its reception 
shows that Lebanon Valley audiences are 
mature enough not only to appreciate 
this form of dramatic presentation. The 

Delphian Initiates 
'Southern Mammies' 

Last Thursday, November 12, Lebanon 
Valley students began to wonder if they 
had not been transplanted into a setting 
in the sunny South about a hundred and 
fifty years ago, for the campus was 
decked with southern mammies. Their 
eyes were not deceiving them, however, 
for the twenty-eight mammies, clutching 
babies of every description and all no- 
ticeably over-balanced by their own 
avoirdupois, were the twenty-eight pledg- 
es of Delta Lambda Sigma, undergoing 
the annual initiation. In addition to wear- 
ing the traditional southern mammy cos- 
tume, the girls were required to sing 
"Shortnin' Bread" upon request and also 
to attempt to collect pennies from male 
students. They were allowed to speak 
only to other Delphian members or

"Frosty the Snowman" was the theme 
for this year's Clio pledgees during ini-

camouflaged with flowing sheets and 
wore on their heads anything from an 
inside-out dink to a five dollar chapeau. 
The initiates also carried brooms and

they served on committees for the pur-

Clio, a sock dance in the college lounge. 
Guests at Games 

Children of the Church Home at 
Jonestown, the orphanage which has 
been adopted by Delphian, were guests 
of the college at the last football game 
of the season Saturday. They will also

games this year. Tickets for the children 
were furnished by the Athletic Associa- 

A Christmas party for the children of

showed our best in the promise of a full-

glad that L. V. parents were here to wit-

then baptized each initiate with generous 
handfuls of olive oil and cornstarch after 
which Jean Lowry mockingly asked,

Sir Charles Jasper was to give a dinner 
on the stage of Saint James' Theatre in 
London. This dinner was for members of 
his family, in observance of a weird an-

the tidy figure of two million pounds.

was slain in the theatre; a dumb girl had 
appeared and the ghost of the murdered 
man flitted on to the stage after the 
dumb girl's death so that the murderer 
was revealed. This, according to the 
prophecy, was to be repeated in fifty- 
five years. The zero hour, at which the 
prophecy was to be fulfilled, was on 
the night when Sir Charles had planned 
his party. 

A most important part in the scheme 
of things was that Maurice Mullins, only 
near relative of Sir Charles, was to in- 
herit the fortune in case of Sir Charles' 
death prior to eleven o'clock. When 
Maurice Mullins enters and begins to 
make arrangements, the play slides on to 
an inexorable ending.

Parents' Day, which was held on Sat- 
urday, November 14, began with a short 
chapel service at 10 a.m. Special demon- 
stration lectures were held after chapel 
for the purpose of demonstrating a typ- 
ical classroom lecture. 

During the afternoon they were enter- 
tained by the L.V.C. Flying Dutchmen at 
the Lebanon Valley - Western Maryland 
football game. After the game, the col- 
lege dormitories held open house and of- 
fered the visitors refreshments and a 
short time for relaxation before a buffet 
supper which was held in Lynch Mem- 
orial Building. To top things off for the 
day was a sparkling talent show, "Valley 
Varieties," produced by the Wig and 
Buckle Club. 

First on the variety show was a duet, 
"Dreams," by Stebbins, with Joyce Sny- 
der at the organ and Frank Mulheron at 
the piano. To show their versatility, 
they changed instruments and played 
"Scherzo," by Clokey. 

Marion Fortna and Bruce Thompson 
did a graceful ballroom dance to the 
tune of "Someone To Watch Over Me." 
Another dance, the brilliant Trepak, was 
done by Darlene Moyer to the vocal ac- 
companiment of Doris Kane, Patricia 
Lutz, Bill Lutz, and Richard Besecker 
with Lucille Hamstead at the piano. 
Ronald Steele conducted the Symphon- 
ette as they played Water Music Suite 
by Handel-Harty. 

Beginning Part II, another highlite of 
of the evening was Benjamin Lutz, who 
sang "When I Have Sung My Songs," 
and "Time Was, When I in Anguish 
Lay." Jane Smith and Bruce Thompson 
did another dance, "Blues in the Night." 
The finale to the production and the busy 
day was a one-act play, "Riders To The 
Sea," which was about an Irish mother 
who lost all her sons to the sea. The 
play took leave of the conventional and 
used neither costumes nor scenery. The 
characters were Joan Rosenberry Myers, 
Maprya; Darlene Moyer, Cathleen; Dor- 
is Kane, Nora; and Clair Kelly, Bartly 
and the Old Man. 

The program was under the direction 
and supervision of Dr. Charles Sloca, 
advisor of Wig and Buckle, and Jack 
Goodman, technical director.

Flying Dutchmen End Season, Five and Two 
With 32 - 20 Triumph Over W. Maryland 


The "L" Men 

With six of Lebanon Valley's seniors 
playing their last game, the Flying 
Dutchmen for the first time in many 
years defeated the Green Terrors from 
Western Maryland 32-20. Led by the 
inspired play of Lou Sorrentino, Dick 
Musselman and Ed Hutchko, Lebanon 
Valley come from behind with three 
touchdowns in the final period to win 
their fifth game of the seven played this 

Valley Scores First 

The Green Terrors started off the 
game with a golden opportunity to score. 
On the first scrimmage play of the game, 
a Valley fumble, recovered by Western 
Maryland, gave them the ball on the 
Dutchman 26. However, the Valley de- 
fense held and four plays later took the 
ball on downs. Then Sorrentino went in- 
to action. Two passes to Frank Ritrievi 
and Don DeBenedett brought the ball to 
the Western Maryland 32. Then on an 
attempted pass to George Radanovic, in- 
terference was called which put the ball 
on the Terror 9. A final pass to Ross 
Plasterer, just short of the goal line, 
paved the way for Sorrentino to score 
from the one foot line. His kick was 
blocked, but the Valley led 6-0. 

Terrors Tie the Valley at Half 

Shortly after the second period West- 
ern Maryland scored. On a 51 yard drive 
sparked by a 32 yard Bimestefer to Ro- 
gan pass play brought the ball to the 
Valley 9. Three plays later Bimestefer 
passed to Neddleman for the score. 
Rausch's kick was good and Western 
Maryland led 7-6. Not daunted in the 

least the Dutchmen came right back to 
score. Ed Hutchko intercepted a Bimes- 
tefer pass on the Green Terror 35 and 
raced up to the 3 before he was down- 
ed; Dick Musselman then bucked over 
for the score to put the Dutchmen out in 
front once again 13-7. Western Mary- 
land, not to be denied, tied the score 
shortly before the half ended, mainly on 
a Bimestefer to Nedleman pass which 
covered 70 yards to the Dutchmen 5. 
Al Miller then passed to the versatile 
Bimestefer for the tying marker. The ex- 
tra point was missed and at the end of 
the half the score was deadlocked at 

Terrors Go Out in Front 

Only one touchdown was scored in the 
third quarter and Western Maryland got 
it. Ed Kelly intercepted a Sorrentino 
pass in the Lebanon Valley 44. A Bimes- 
tefer to Rogan pass brought the ball to 
the Valley 17 and another pass to Butler 
took it over. The kick was good and 
Western Maryalnd led again, 20-13. 

Valley Turns Tide 

From then on, however, it was all 
Lebanon Valley as they poured across 
three touchdowns in the final period. The 
first one came on an 85 yard drive with 
Sorrentino and Musselman sparking the 
attack. On the first play of the final 
quarter, a Sorrentino to Musselman pass 
covered the final 28 yards. However, 
Sorrentino's try for the extra point was 
wide and Western Maryland still led by 
one point 20-19. However, by now the 
Valley attack was really rolling. The 
Green Terror's attack stalled on the 

Lebanon Valley 40 and the Dutchmen 
took over from there. Then Lou Sorren- 
tino staged a one man show. Passes to 
Retrievi, Radanovic and DeBenedett took 
the ball to the Terror 16. Then Sorren- 
tino ran the ball to the one yard line 
where he plunged over on the next play 
to put the Valley out in front for keeps 
25-20. The Dutchmen then scored once 
more to put the game on ice as Dick 
Musselman intercepted a pass on the 
Lebanon Valley 45. Then with Sorren- 
tino and Musselman alternating in run- 
ning plays, the Valley swept up the 
field with Dick scoring from the 11. The 
point was made as Sorrentino passed 
to Ed Hutchko. 

Thus Lebanon Valley's 1953 football 
season came to a successful conclusion 
after a somewhat slow start. It was prob- 
ably the first time any Lebanon Valley 
football team won two games in one 
week. The graduating seniors, Lou Sor- 
rentino, Dick Musselman, Ed Hutchko, 
Don DeBenedett, Frank Ritrievi and 
Lou Gittleman all got a great hand from 
the Parents Day crowd as they came off 
of the field for the last time. They de- 
served it.

Valley Suppresses Top Rival 
As Albright Bows, 13-0

The Place Where Students 
Congregate For a Bite In a 
Cheerful Atmosphere 

The Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley won 
an impressive and unprecedented thirteen 
point victory over their traditional Al- 
bright rivals in the annual Shriners Pret- 
zel Bowl game at Reading. 

The five thousand fans in attendance 
forgot about their frigidity when warmed 
by the outstanding 60-minute play of 
"Lustrous" Lou Sorrentino. LVC's ace 
senior Q-back scored all thirteen points 
with superlative passing, running and ov- 
erall strategy and was a predominant 
factor in keeping the Lions scoreless. 
However, teamwork was the key factor 
in helping the Dutchmen outplay and 
upset the Albright Lions. The Blue and 
White forward wall knocked over the Al- 
bright line like soggy pretzel sticks and 
put on a dramatic stand in the last sec- 
onds of the first half when they twice 
stopped the Lions' touchdown bid inside 
the Valley five. Dick Musselman and 
Don DeBenedett added to the Valley 
cause by their exceptional running, while 
teammate Frank Ritrievi did some fancy 
catching. Ed Hutchko was the usual 
standout on defense with his low, knock- 
'em-down tackling. 

Valley Scoring 

The first half was interesting, but 
scoreless. Albright tried twice to score, 
but was thwarted on both attempts. The 
first time, Dick Musselman made a time- 
ly interception deep in Valley territory 
and the second time the Dutchmen made 
that historic goal line stand. 

After Sorrentino had a 20 yard field 
goal try blocked by center Jack Hunt- 
zinger, Lou culminated a Blue and White 
57 yard drive by sneaking over from the 
Lions' one. Adding insult to Albright 
injury, Lou kicked the bonus attempt in 
the middle of the uprights. The second 
play of the fourth quarter produced an- 
other Dutchmen touchdown. After drives 
by Musselman and DeBenedett, Sorren- 
tino literally dove over from the Lion 
one. Thus the final score read Lebanon 
Valley 13— Albright 0. 

Honors Galore 

Besides winning their fourth victory of 
the season, Lebanon Valley gained a 
number of other honors by winning this 
crucial game. By this victory, LVC took 
a 15 to 14 lead in the Albright series, 
notching their fourth win on Albright 
territory. They also proudly carried 
home the annually awarded Pretzel Bowl 
Trophy which always goes to the victor 
of this game. 

Lou Sorrentino added immeasurably 
to this unequalled Lebanon Valley record 
by completing nine aerials good for 107 
yards, rushing for 88 more and averag- 
ing 44 yards on punts. For his out- 
standing play Lou was unanimously rec- 
ognized as the best player on the Leba- 
non Valley 11 for which he received a 
miniature gold football. Jack Huntzinger 
was awarded one for the Lions.

three years of first string varsity ball.

Valley Unveils 
'53 Hoopsters 

Football season is over and basket- 
ball again is the byword in Lebanon 
Valley's campus, with co-captains Herb 
Finkelstein and Lou Sorrentino, to- 
gether with Howie Landa — the only 
members of the big seven which car- 
ried us into the N. C. A. A. playoff 
remaining — Coach "Rinso" Marquette 
has to rely mainly on freshman to 
bolster the starting lineup. 

The two candidates who seem most 
likely to fill in the two remaining parts 
are Dick Shover and Don Reinhard. 
Don, a towering 6' 4" from Pine Grove, 
Pa., seems likely to start at center 
while Shover, a 6' 1" John Harris alum- 
nus more recently out of the Marines, 
should get a forward shot on the 
strength of his accurate one hand shoot- 
ing and good rebounding ability. 

Other men scrapping for a birth on 
the starting lineup include two veterans, 
6' 3" Howie Kosier and 5' 10" Kenny 
Ellis and several newcomers. One of 
these, Bob Nelson another John Harris 
alumnus standing at 6' 4" also, seems 
certain to see a great deal of action at 
center. Other freshman include Larry 
Mentzer a 5' 10" drive in artist, who 
hails from Myerstown, Ken Schuler a 
5' 10" net shot specialist from Colum- 
bia, and Don Banchik a 6' 2" Bronxite. 

In the three scrimmages to date, the 
Flying Dutchmen have shown that they 
will be a troublesome outfit this year. In 
the first scrimmage they bowed to Mil- 
lersville by eleven poims. Following this 
defeat, they ran over the Carlisle Bar- 
racks, 106-87, and last night, again en- 
countering Millersville, the Valley aveng- 
ed its previous loss, 75-68. With 
the nucleus of Landa, Sorrentino 
and Finkelstein sparking the attack, the 
Flying Dutchmen should come close to 
their great record of last year. Not 
much can be said for this trio that 
hasn't been said a thousand times 
before. Their speed, magnificent ball 
handling, and uncany accuracy from 
both the floor and the foul line will 
bode no good for any opponent no 
matter how large, as Fordham, to their 
grief, found out last year. With teams 
such as Temple and Villanova added 
to the schedule, the Dutchmen will find 
the going rough at times, but all in all 
it should be another successful year 
for the Lebanon Valley basketeers. 

Lou Sorrentino 
Accepts Bid To Play 
In Blue-Grey Contest 

Lou Sorrentino, one of the most out- 
standing athletes ever to play for Leba- 
non Valley, has been invited to partici- 
pate in the Blue-Grey game at Mont- 
gomery, Alabama, on December 26. 
Chosen by Dick Harlowe, advisory coach 
at Western Maryland and one of the 
members of the selection board for the 
affair, Lou has the distinction of being 
the first member of any Lebanon Valley 
football team to be selected for a post- 
season game of this kind. 

Junior Varsity Team 
Commences Practice 

The junior varsity basketball team 
had its first workout last Tuesday after- 
noon under the tutelage of ex-football 
coach Dick Fox. Stressing the funda- 
mentals of weaving, dribbling, passing 
and driving, in an attempt to mold a 
winning team, Coach Fox gave his charg- 
es a stiff workout. 

This year's team consists of Rusty Ow- 
ens from Harrisburg, Paul Snyder from 
Dallastown, Jim Stanfield from Lans- 
downe, Carl Grubb from Palmyra, Gene 
Zimmerman from Harrisburg, Larry 
Ziegler form Red Lion, Dick Harmon 
from Harrisburg, Frank McCullough 
from Havertown, and Ross Plasterer, 
Bob Birch, and Hal Benninghoff, all 
from Lebanon.

The Constitution was written to serve the people. When a person 
demands a writ of habeas corpus, he is utilizing the Constitution just as 
he is when he refuses to testify against himself. But why only in the 
latter case is he regarded as evading justice? Isn't the Constitution the 
cornerstone of justice in our nation? In both instances the citizen 
is seeking protection for his individual rights. Doesn't the Constitu-

This is a picture of our government in action. But is this the way 
the Constitution declares the government should act? 

College helps us to face the realities of life. Our courses in politi-

these principles today. Democracy will lose its effectiveness if

The Promise Fulfilled- 

A Time for Rejoicing 

Job in his anguished confusion cried out: "What is man that 
Thou art mindful of him and the son of man that Thou visiteth him?" 
Weighted with seemingly individual responsibility, harassed by problems 
the factors of which he cannot control, or bewildered by a seeming lack 
of justice in the world, modern Job has cried out in the same way. 
Even as the ancient Job wondered who and what God is, sought to 
find his way to Him, and cried out for help, so has modern Job acted. 

But suddenly, his head and heart drawn by a star, this same man 
sings carols in praise of Him who is the manifestation of God's love 
for man, the revelation of God's truth to man, and the affirmation of 
man's life in God. A star guided the wise men to the manger at Bethle- 
hem. Even so, the crystalline glory of that event guides man to look 
to the child born of a virgin and wrapped in swaddling clothes and to 
the God he reveals to man. 

Christmas is the joyous fulfillment of a promise, but even more, 
it is a hope-giving inspiration to man, the testimony that there is a 
God who loves and acts to guide his children. 

Sing carols in the church, light candles on the altars and in the 
windows, send greetings to friends, welcome neighbors into your home, 
enjoy in the loving security of your homes a respite from campus life, 
but above all else, rejoice fervently in your heart for a living God and 
His Son, Jesus Christ, for the Truth, the Life, and the Love revealed to 

Casuals and Classics 

To: The Lebanon Valley co-eds 
From: One who knows 

Subject: Our choice of fig leaves-er, I mean, clothes 

Reason: We've been complained about. 

Plan of action: We must do something about it. 

There it is — in that old conventional nutshell. We, the feminine lot of 
Lebanon Valley College, after several years of scrutiny and investigation by the 
male population of the campus, have been severely criticized for our "ho-hum" 
attitude in dressing and our "duh" extent of knowledge about what-to-wear- 
where. This may sound like double talk but it describes the situation perfectly 
and if you are up in arms about the complaint itself, read no further, because 
this article is not a defense of we poor female innocents — it is a frank admission 
of guilt and an attempt to awaken female pride and sense of neatness on campus. 

Reading all the monthly fashion magazines is an entertaining way of 
spending time and money. However, these advertising wonders do nothing in 
the practical sense for us, here on Lebanon Valley College campus, but create 
the desire for beautifully photographed dresses, gowns, jewelry. We lack sug- 
gestions — valid ones — for a basic wardrobe, what to wear to weekend basketball 
games, how to dress neatly and satisfactorily for dinner each evening, and many 
other campus situations which bring the overused question to reign — "What'll I 
wear?" Here is the attempt to answer the problem and questions. Other ques- 
tions or suggestions will be gratefully accepted. 

The basic wardrobe: Skirts— (1) a gray flannel (2) a brown tweed (3) a 
conservative plaid (4) a heather blue. Sweaters — most of us have too many 
sweaters — our job is to keep them clean, to vary our accessories, and to wear 
only those colors which blend with our individual coloring — not to mention the 
color of the skirt. All in all, five sweaters are ample — two slipovers and three 
cardigans would be a practical proportion. Shoes — (1) saddle shoes or loafers — 
your choice (2) a pair of basic black heels (3) a pair of basic brown heels, 
(4) wear the beloved— and I say this with a sob— blue sneakers in the dorm. 
Try, above all, to keep your shoes clean and heeled — it makes a big difference. 
Dresses— (1) a woolen tweed can look like a different dress with changes in 
jewelry, scarves, or collars (2) a basic black taffeta (appropriate for dances, 
parties— not movie dates) (3) the practical gray jersey dress— dressy, informal, 
appropriate for everything from a movie to a Saturday night basketball game. 
Accessories are a definite part of the basic wardrobe— scarves, pins, the medal- 
lion, the society pin, the string of pearls— all help to make you and your 
clothes interesting to look at. 

There it is— a basic wardrobe that any co-ed on this campus can be con- 
tent with. Quantity means nothing. Good taste, cleanliness, and neatness mean 
everything in judging a well-dressed student. 

Now that New Year's resolutions are in order, may I suggest that your 
appearance head the list of reforms? 

Ink Spots 
From Green Blotter 

"The Infant Shepherd" 

In all the stories of the birth of our 
Lord, of the stable and donkey and Wise 
Men three, we almost always forget the 
kind innkeeper and his little daughter 
who prepared the manger to hold our 
Infant King. 

Now it just happened that on the very 
same day Jesus was to be born in Bethle- 
hem, the fuzzy little lambs of the inn- 
keeper's daughter became sick and were 
to spend the clear, calm night in the 
stable. The little girl, about four, with 
warm brown eyes and long brown hollow 
curls that one would like to stick his fin- 
ger through, went to the stable to spread 
out evenly the sweet smelling hay and 
make a bed in the manger for the small- 
est and sickest lamb. With her little 
white apron tied high on her waist, and 
with just a touch of inward-pointed toes, 
she went earnestly to her work. 

At this time, being toward evening, a 
couple came wearily to the inn and in- 
quired about lodging; and, as the proph- 
ecy goes, they were told the only place 
available would be the stable. 

"Maybe you will watch my sheep for 
me tonight? You see, they ate some 
bad grass and are very sick," said the 
little girl to the tired travelers as they 
entered their humble quarters. 

"We should be glad to tend your 
lambs, for they share their home with 
us," replied the soft-spoken man. 

The little girl went back to the inn to 
go to bed, for every little four-year-old 
girl should go to bed early. 

That night a star arose and came near- 
er and nearer and became brighter and 
brighter till it lighted the whole town as 
day. The little girl ran to the window 
and saw the star directly above and cried, 
"Oh, I must wish upon this star tonight 
that my sheep, come morning, will be 
all right." 

For she, unaware of what had hap- 
pened below, could just as well have 
been an angel there herself as her rosy 
cheeks against the blue white shadows 
lent color to the night.

The Secretary 
Reports . . . 

Samuel Yeagley, in his second year as 
president, presented a letter of resigna- 
tion at the regular Student-Faculty Coun- 
cil meeting on November 19. (Sam was 
inducted into the Armed Services in No- 
vember.) As a result of his resignation, 
the club voted to go on record praising 
Mr. Yeagley for his outstanding work 
as president during his terms of office. 

The committee which was to evaluate 
the present constitution and the purpose 
of the Student-Faculty Council presented 
its report at this meeting. Mary Lou 
Young, chairman, Bill Kelly, Herb Ely, 
Dean Dent, Dean Keller, and President 
Miller were appointed as a committee to 
investigate the suggestions of this Evalu- 
ation Committee. 

The duties of those people posting 
news on the bulletin board in the Admin- 
istration Building will be brought up-to- 
date by a committee consisting of Rosie 
Hollinger, chairman, Janice Walker, and 
Bob Hower. 

President Bill Kelly, the former vice- 
president, conducted the Student-Faculty 
Council meeting on December 3. 

It was announced that the faculty and 
administration has accepted the Student- 
Faculty Council's offer to edit and pub- 
lish the L-Book for 1954-55. 

Both Jiggerboard and Men's Senate 
were appropriated money by the Council 
for financing the Christmas dinner and 

The next regular meeting of the Stu- 
dent-Faculty Council will be held De- 
cember 17, 7 p.m., in room 16 of the Ad- 
ministration Building. 


Congratulations to all those who helped to make the Fizzle Follies of '53 
a roaring success. Approximately one hundred and fifty dollars was raised from 
this performance. By the way, the girls can feel quite proud of the fact that they 
sold twice as many tickets as the fellows. 

The money raised from the "Fizzle Follies" and the money paid for the 
Conserv Formal tickets was well spent, for we all had a tremendous time on 
Saturday evening at the Blue Ridge County Club. 

The decorations, which consisted mostly of Christmas trees, candles and 
pine branches, were simple but effective. We can thank Sylvia Wolfskill for 
finding the novel favors. Those dainty perfume atomizers in the form of tiny 
spray guns will be handy to keep in our purses, girls. The dinner of Swiss 
steak with all the trimmings and the dancing to Allan Shearer's Orchestra pro- 
vided a most enjoyable time for all seventy couples who attended this affair. 

The juniors in the Conserv under the supervision of Prof. Stachdw had 
the most delightful experience last Tuesday evening when they heard the Guard 
Republican Band of Paris at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. 

The program, which included such works as Ravel's "Bolero," Liszt's "Hun- 
garian Rhapsody," Debussy's "Prelude to The Afternoon of a Faun," and 
Richard Strauss's "Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks," was played with such 
precision, ease, balance, and perfect intonation that it left the packed audience 

The woodwind which included a clarinet choir, the clarinet solo, and the 
unusual quality of the straight soprano sax were among the highlights of the 
program. It was an exciting thing to see the conductor of the Marine Band 
present the conductor of the Guard Republican Band, Captain Francois-Julien 
Brun, with a life membership into the Band Masters' Association. My only re- 
gret is that the entire Conserv could not be present at this concert. 

Many of the Conservites, especially the seniors, attended the P. M. E. A. 
Convention in Harrisburg on Friday, December 4. Approximately forty L .V. C. 
graduates attended the noon alumni luncheon which was held at the Penn Harris 
Hotel. Professor Smith and Joanne Bachman took part in two of the panel dis- 
cussions. Both of them should be congratulated on their commemorable con- 
tribution. Some of the features that highlighted the convention were the lecture 
on Music Literature in the High School and College, Pre-band Instrument 
Training as Taught in the Elementary Schools, the Clarinet Clinic directed by 
William Stubbins, and the concert given by the Indiana State Teachers College 
Glee Club. 

The Pennsylvania Collegiate Choral Festival will be held at Lock Haven 
State Teachers College on January 30, 31, and Feb. 1, 1954. Those interested in 
going should give their names to Professor Rutledge. The conductor of the 
chorus is Donald Craig. 

Several students from the L. V. C. Conservatory participated in a recital at 
the Immanuel E. U. B. Church in Reading on Sunday, December 13 at 4 p.m. 
This program was given during a tea which the church holds each year and 
was attended by approximately six hundred guests. Those students participating 
were Ben Lutz, tenor, Jane Taylor, flutist, and John Sant Ambrogio, cellist. The 
accompanists for the program were Joyce Snyder and Jack Ervin. 

Pinky's Patter 

Christmas is the time when we celebrate the birth of Christ. The spirit 
of giving pervades the air and in line with this spirit, people begin to shop 
for gifts to give. 

The lady shopper gets up early in the morning to get an early start and 
"beat the crowd." She may drive to the shopping area and be lucky enough 
to find a parking place for her car. When our shopper enters the store, she 
pulls out her shopping list to look it over and decide where to begin. 

"Let's see now; I'll start in the blouse department. Aunt Jessie wants a 
blouse." And then our shopper discovers that she has forgotten to include 
several people on her list. She decides to finish the list over a cup of coffee 
in the cafeteria of the department store. On her way, however, she passes the 
linen counter. Since there is a mob of people standing around, Mrs. Shopper 
figures there must be a sale. Pushing her way through the crowd, elbowing 
and stepping on people's toes, she makes her way up to the counter, much to 
the disgust of less forward lady shoppers. After looking at each item on sale, 
she picks several washcloths and then tries to get the attention of one of the 
sales clerks. Several minutes pass and the tired clerk comes to wait on Mrs. 
Shopper. By this time our friend has decided that she'd rather have a red than 
a pink washcloth and insists on finding one in the pile. 

The crowd thickens in the store and our lady shopper, after finally purchas- 
ing the red washcloth, decides to get on with the shopping. Mrs. Shopper 
proceeds to the elevator to save time in going up to the blouse department. Bui 
after spending fifteen minutes waiting for a crowded elevator, she decides to walk. 

In the blouse department she finds a lovely blouse for Aunt Jessie — but it 
costs too much, and so the ordeal of finding a blouse to suit Aunty commenced 

After finding a suitable blouse and getting the attention of a sales clerk, 
Mrs. Shopper looks at her watch and discovers that noon has arrived — time for 
a refreshing cup of coffee. 

As she walks through the crowds, she is pushed, bumped and shoved on 
all sides. In the cafeteria, where she can usually eat lunch very swiftly, she 
finds a line that seemingly stretches for miles. Mrs. Shopper decides to get on 
with the shopping and then go home for her coffee. The afternoon is much 
like the morning's events: battling crowds, indecision, waiting for clerks — you 
all know the story. 

With a man, it seems to be different; he goes and gets what he wants and 
there is little or no indecision. 

Nancy Gower thinks that she would like to do her Christmas shopping 
after the store has been cleared of people, but Audrey DaCosta would rather use 
a mail order catalogue. 

Indeed, Christmas crowds do offer a challenge to people with the "spirit 
of giving." 

Mangled hat, clothing in shreds, 
This is to be my fate; 
Shopping leaves me almost dead, 
Trying to beat the Christmas date. 

La Vie Collegienne, Tuesday, December 15, 1953 
















If you talk too much or too loudly in 
the movies, you are asked to cut the gos- 
sip and be quiet. You usually obey. 

If you stretch and move about too 
much in front of the TV set in Washing- 
ton Hall, you are told to take your exer- 
cises later and be still. Again, you obey. 

If you distract and annoy the specta- 
tors at a basketball game, you are told 
to save the jokes until later and pay 
attention to the game. Here, you also 

If, however, you talk, move about, or 
cause a disturbance in Chapel, nil pre- 
vious precedences are forgotten — or ig- 

If you get a chance to see the films of 
a football game you've seen the Saturday 
before, you put aside your studies and 
other plans in order to attend. 

If you spend all your pin money on 
the reco dings of ©ne vocalist, you do 
not complain, other than to be sorry you 
have no more to rspend. 

If you are in the habit of going to the 
movies every Saturday evening, you go 
and, although the picture is not enjoy- 
able, do not complain. 

If, however, you are asked to attend 
one forty-five minute Chapel a week 
during the school year, you demand that 
something new and outstanding be pre- 
sented to you each time. 

If you like songs and dances, yaw. go 
to every June Haver picture and never 
consider the similarity of the contents. 

If ymi prefer athletics, you ane per- 
fectly willing to watch the home team's 
every game, regardless of their winning 
or losing luck. 

If you are the type for blood and thun- 
der, you read every Mickey SpiHane book 
and never question the fact that his mix- 
tune ©f -sex, sadism, and Scripture is simi- 
lar in each book. 

If, however, you enter Chapel and see 
that the speaker's name begins with a 
"Reverend," "Dr.," or "Professor," you 
decide it's all the same and never even 
bother to look at the last name. 

If you spend a few extra hours with 
the gang some evening, you do not think 
off getting the time back. 

If yon become interested in a cross- 
word puzzle and spend hours over it, you 
do not consider your studies t© be more 

If, however, you find that Chapel runs 
five minutes overtime, the speaker is a 
windbag and you completely forget the 
many times the service has ended early. 

Chapel, you know, is a part <of Leba- 
non Valley College. Officially it's listed 
on pages twenty-four and thirty-'srx of the 
catalogue. More than that, however, 
Chapel is !the time when we are asked to 
remember not merely that this is a col- 
lege of the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church, but that this is a college found- 
ed, built, and we hope, living by its 
motto: ""Ye shall know the Truth, and 
the Truth shall make you free." (John 
8:32.) Chapel is not a time when the 
college wosaM ram doctrine and dogma 
down our thraaats — indeed, it knows that 
this would be impossible, but a lime 
when the college would give us ideas and 
ask us to consider them. The concern <of 
the college is not so much that we accept 
its way of thought, but that we accept 
thought as a way of life. 

Knowing all too well that students do 
not keep a record of Chapel programs, 1 
checked up on the speakers who have 
appeared in Chapel. Out of the fourteen 
Chapel services we have had, outside 
speakers have appeared in four of them. 
The remaining programs, except the 
Campus Chest program in which four 
students speak, have featured addresses 
by professors. In November, when Cha- 
Pel was planned on the theme of "Wither 
Goest Thou?" students were given the 
viewpoints of people in the fields of his- 
tory, the humanities, chemistry, and psy- 

Chapel services might prove interesting 
a nd enlightening to us if given half a 
chance — say, half the chance we give to 
other campus activities! 

Delphian Treats 
Orphanage Children 
To Christmas Party 

Girls of Delta Lambda Sigma enter- 
tained the children of the Church Home 
in Jonestown at a Christmas party on 
Tuesday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m. The 
home, which was "adopted" by Delphian 
this year, houses boys and girls from 
ages 5 to 18, who come mainly from 
broken homes. 

Highlight of the party was the distribu- 
tion of gifts to all the children. Each gift 
had been bought for each child person- 
ally so that no two were alike. 

Pat Satterthwaite, Carol Johnstone, 
and Julia Ulrich entertained with several 
vocal trio numbers, and Nancy Daugher- 
ty read Charles Tazewell's story, "The 
Littlest Angel," to the children. Also on 
the program were several group songs. 

Refreshments consisted of hot choco- 
late and cookies. 

Math Professor 
Originates Theories 

The October issue of the Mathematics 
Magazine carries an article by a Hindu 
mathematician, Dr.. Diran Sarafyan, 
based on theories originated by Dr. Bar- 
nard H. Bissinger, associate professor of 
mathematics at LVC. 

In addition to properly crediting Dr. 
Bissinger at the end of his article, Dr. 
Sarafyan indicates in his paper that one 
application off this extended work in 
some ways improves on the classic for- 
mulas of Newton and Horner. These 
formulas of Newton and Horner have 
been used for years in text books on 
Theory of Equations to approximate the 
roots of cubic equations and higher order 

College President 
Speaks To Students 

Physical improvements and college ex- 
penses were discussed at a meeting of the 
student body, which was held on Decem- 
ber 7, in Lynch Memorial Physical Edu- 
cation Building. Bill Kelly, president of 
Student-Faculty Council, presided over 
the meeting. 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of 
the college gave a short summary of phy- 
sical improvements to the college and 
announced plans, as well as locations, 
for the new library, science building, and 
women's dormitory, plans of which are 
being drawn. He also gave a brief finan- 
cial statement of the college funds, as 
well as the Alumni Fund and endow- 
ments. Dr. Miller pointed out that the 
tuition, room and board that the students 
pay only covers seventy-two per cent of 
the total college expenses. The other 
twenty-eight per cent is provided by the

Alumni Fund, and endowments. 

Mr. Miller also told the students about 
a letter he had received from the editor 
of a daily paper in York, which compli- 
mented the student body on its good be- 
havior and sportsmanship at the Gettys- 
burg-Lebanon Valley basketball game.

Talks To Tri-Beta 

Robert Bray Wingate, medical illus- 
trator for the Harrisburg Hospital, pre- 
sented a talk to Tri-Beta society on Tues- 
day evening, December 8. Mr. Wingate, 
an alumni 'of Lebanon Valley College, 
who did his graduate work at Johns Hop- 
kins, gave excerpts from his paper, "A 
Method of Fabricating Medical and Sci- 
entific Moiialages in Latex Rubber," which 
he presented to the Pennsylvania Acad- 
emy of Science last spring. He empha- 
sized the use of this type of model in 
both the medical and educational fields. 

After this talk, Mr. Wingate and Dr. 
Francis H. Wilson, professor of biology 
at Lebanon Valley College, were initiat- 
ed into Tri-Beta as active members. 

William Craighead, a recent graduate 
of Lebanon Valley College, will be the 
guest speaker in January. Mr. Craighead, 
who is now teaching at George School, 
will show slides of wild flowers and 
movies of bird handing. 

Marian Marcus was chosen freshman 
class president at an election held on 
November 24. At the same time Tom 
Silliman was elected treasurer. These two 
people had tied with Tom Nettis and 
Georgianne Funk, respectively, in a poll 
taken the day before. The freshmen se- 
lected Dick Shover as vice-president at 
this first election. 

Two ties resulted from the voting for 
secretary. In the first election Grace 
Gorbey, Joan Conway, and Jo Anne 
Grove all received the same number of 
votes, and in the second poll, Grace Gor- 
bey and Jo Anne Grove again tied. On 
December 8 the freshmen finally made a 
choice, and Grace Gorbey was named 
secretary of the class of 1957.

Memoranda on Musicians 

Mr. Robert Smith, professor in the 
Conservatory of Music, was a member of 
the panel which discussed the topic, "The 
Scope of Music in the High School." This 
discussion look place on Friday morn- 
ing, December 5, at the P.M.E.A. Con- 
vention in Harrisburg. 

The purpose of this panel was to deter- 
mine the philosophy of the function of 
music in the high school and to find a 
program which might satisfy the student, 
the parent and the administrator. 

Mr. Smith gave a five-minute talk on 
the topic, "What Courses Should Be Of- 
fered in Music to Students in the Second- 
ary Level." He stated that the curriculum 
which might satisfy one school system 
would not necessarily meet the needs of 
another. The points that would have to 
be considered in picking a music curricu- 
lum would have to include the locality, 
the student body, the burden put upon 
the teachers, the financial assistance 
available, and the problem of time and 

Joanne Bachman, a senior in the Con- 
servatory of Music, was a member of a 
panel discussion which was held at the 
P.M.E.A. Convention in Harrisburg on 
Friday afternoon, December 4. The topic 
discussed was "Pre-College Training of a 
Music Education Major." 

The other members of the panel were 
representatives from nine other colleges 
in Pennsylvania that have music educa- 
tion departments: Temple University, 
Bucknell University, Pennsylvania State 
University, Susquehanna University, Car- 
negie Institute of Technology, West 
Chester, Mansfield, and Indiana State 
Teachers Colleges. Each one gave his 
opinion on the value of piano training, 
theory training, and experience in play- 
ing in musical organizations. Also men- 
tioned were the advantages of certain 
instruments over others in the high 
school training of a person going into 
music education. The moderator of this 
panel was Dr. David Stone from Temple 

Here's hoping everybody enjoys the Christmas festivities this 
evening. Everyone at LVC is invited to the evening's events, but 
only dorm students may attend the annual Christmas banquet in 
the dining hall at 6 o'clock. A turkey dinner with all the trim- 
mings, candlelight and decorations, guest speakers and Christmas 
carols will help to put everyone in the holiday spirit. 

Between the dinner and the dance, don't forget to attend the 
program in Engle Hall. Wig and Buckle is presenting a one-act 
play and the SCA choir is singing a Christmas cantata. If the 
banquet doesn't give you that Christmas feeling, this program 
surely will! 

Recently the college received a gift which could well be termed a Christ- 
mas present. Last Tuesday in chapel Mrs. Alfred D. Strickler presented to 
the college a portrait she had painted of the Reverend Thomas Rees Vickroy, 
first president of Lebanon Valley. Both Mrs. Strickler and her husband, a 
prominent physician, are alumni of LVC and reside in Lebanon. The portrait 
of Rev. Vickroy, for whom Vickroy Hall is named, is now in Dr. Miller's of- 
fice. The college deeply appreciates Mrs. Strickler's generous gift. 

The SCA will sponsor Christmas caroling tomorrow evening at 
8:30 p.m. for all who are interested. Two hay wagons will leave 
from behind the gym and tour through Annville for about an hour, 
singing Christmas carols and stopping occasionally at professors' 
homes to sing for them. For the final touch of the festivities, 
the carolers will congregate at Hot Dog Frank's for hot chocolate. 
The enthusiasm displayed by the students and alumni at the Villanova game 
certainly proved the loyalty of the Blue and White rooters. The Philadelphia 
Inquirer thought that all the din was worthy of a closer score, but we're still 
very proud of the Flying Dutchmen's performance. Also to be commended are 
the cheerleaders and the German band for leading the LVC group. 

That German band surely is popular. Soon our team will be as well known 
fot these musicians as our college is for basketball! The band's trip to 
Philadelphia for the Villanova game was sponsored by Frank and Delia Marino 
of the Co-ed in Annville. The band is sincerely grateful to these friends of 
the college for both the financial aid and moral support they extended. Mem- 
bers of the German band are Ralph Minnick, Don Gingrich, Joel Wiest, and 
Dick Gingrich, trumpets; Tony Kiehner and George Seyfert, horns; Jerry Lego, 
trombone; Dave Willoughby, bass; Henry Hollinger, baritone; Tom Silliman, 
Dewitt Zuse, Bruce Baver, and Bruce Blecker, clarinets. 

Speaking of musicians, what about Walters, Bosacco, and com- 
pany on the first floor of the Men's Dorm? Sometimes we can 
hear their jazz concerts from Washington Hall; they've really got 
the Dixieland rhythm. 

John Paczak, psychological counselor for the Lebanon City Schools, spoke 
on "Psychology in Education" Wednesday night, December 9, at the monthly 
meeting of the Psychology Club. Mr. Paczak received his M.A. at the University 
of Missouri and is now working for his Ph.D. degree at Ohio State. He has 
also spent two years in the Special Education Department of Public Instruction 
in Dover, Maryland. 

The Women's Commuter Council is having its annual Christ- 
mas party in the Day Student room at noon Thursday in the form 
of a buffet luncheon. The girls in the dorms had their Christmas 
parties Sunday night. All the dorms have Christmas trees and 
other decorations — only three more school days until Christmas 
vacation and then only six days until Christmas! 

What do you want for Christmas? Something every college student needs 
this vacation is sleep. As Joan Eckenroad so aptly stated at the breakfast table 
several weeks ago, "Sleep, sweet mystery of life." Whatever your plans for 
Christmas are, here's hoping that you have a merry time and a happy holiday.

Gettysburg Dumps 
Dutchmen In Debut 

Lebanon Valley unofficially opened its 
1953-1954 basketball season over the 
Thanksgiving week-end by losing to 
Gettysburg College, 61-60, in a game 
played as the feature contest of the 
Seventh Annual Sports Night benefit dou- 
ble-header at the York Junior College in 

This year's version of the Flying 
Dutchmen held the lead throughout most 
of the contest, only to lose the game in 
the final seconds on an outside shot by 
Joe Lang. Both teams used the zone 
defense, but G-burg relied on outside 
shooting while Valley worked consistent- 
ly from the inside. The game was a 
story of halves. 

The Blue and White men dominated 
the first half mainly through the re- 
bounding of Herb Finkelstein and Don 
Reinhard and through the efforts of 
Howie Landa, who scored twenty points 
in the first twenty minutes on a variety 
of sensational twisting, falling drive-ins. 
The Dutchmen left the floor at the half 
with a 39-37 advantage. 

The second half was as barren as the 
first was fruitful. Finkelstein tried to 
match the Bullets' rally when Landa left 
the game for four fouls, but near the end 
of the final quarter G-burg caught and 
passed LVC, winning the game on Lang's 
final goal. Landa missed a shot under 
the basket on a controversial play with 
three seconds left in the game. 

L. V. C. Edges Temple, 62-58 
Overtime Victory Ends Battle 


In the most spine-tingling game that 
this campus has seen this season, the 
Flying Dutchmen edged the Temple Owls 
in overtime, 62-58, last night. Climaxing 
an uphill fight that saw the Valley over- 
come a 15-point lead at one stage of 
the game, the Fighting Five staged a tre- 
mendous comeback in the second half 
to pull even at 56-56 and then dominated 
play in the overtime to achieve victory 
over one of the top quintets in the East. 

Valley Falls Behind As Shots Fail 

For a time in the first half, it looked 
as if the Owls were going to run away 
with the game. A nervous Valley team 
did not make a bucket until early in the 
second quarter while the Owls caged all 
four goals in the first quarter and led, 
15-7, as it ended. The second quarter 
was practically a repetition of the first. 
Led by Hal Lear, the Owls streaked to a 
13-point advantage at halftime, 36-23, 
and held onto it during the third period, 
despite some fancy shooting by Howie 
Landa and Herb Finkelstein. 

Dutchmen Stage Comeback 

In the second half the Dutchmen put 
on their patented all-court press which 
proved so effective in the tight games 
last season. They stepped tt up as the 
fourth period began, and the tired Owls 
were easy prey for such ball hawkers as 
Landa, Finkelstein, and Sorrentino. Slow- 
ly but surely the Dutchmen crept up. 

Valley Clashes With Villanova, 

Wildcats Emerge Victorious a 

Then, with the score 56-54 in favor of 
the Owls, Lou Sorrentino caged the tying 
basket with less than four minutes to 
play. The Owls tried to stall for the 
final bucket, but the Valley defense 
proved too much and the game ended 
with a tie. 

Valley Wins In Overtime 
As the overtime commenced, Don 
Reinhard was fouled by Hal Lear, his 
fifth personal. His departure put a dent 
in the Temple offense, for he was a 
sparkplug. Reinhard made the foul and 
the Valley led for the first itme, 57-56. 
Temple brought the ball up court, Miller 
missed, and the Valley took over. Then 
came tense, anxious moments as the 
Dutchmen attempted a freeze. It was 
broken with about two minutes to play, 
but Temple missed its shot. Lebanon 
Valley commenced its freeze, but Bob 
Nelson was fouled. He made one, but 
missed the second. However, Don Rein- 
hard took the rebound and a wild scram- 
ble ensued. Nelson, the hero of the 
night, caged the bucket which for all in- 
tents and purposes spelled doom for the 
Owls. The rest was anti-climax. Miller 
made a basket and was fouled. He delib- 
erately missed, but Reinhord took the 
rebound. In the wild scramble down 
court, Sorrentino was fouled. He made 
both shots and the game ended on that 

Basketball Schedule 

In a stubborn, hard-fought game which 
was close until the final quarter, the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen were downed by a sharp- 
shooting Wildcat team from Villanova, 
74-60. Led by their high-scoring 6'3" 
guard, Bob Schafer, the Wildcats ripped 
the game wide open in the second period, 
withstood a third period Valley rush, 
and in the final stanza won going away. 

This game was the second in a double- 
header at the Palestra in Philadelphia on 
Saturday night, December 5. In the other 
game the University of Pennsylvania de- 
feated the University of Delaware. 

Valley Dominates Opening Period 

Lebanon Valley took the opening tap 
and Herb Finkelstein sank a basket right 
away. It seemed as if this would 
be the Fordham game all over again as 
the Dutchmen led throughout a great 
deal of the first quarter on the strength 
of the great shooting of Howie Landa 
and Herb Finkelstein with seven and 
eight points, respectively. Then, just at 
the end of the quarter, Bob Schafer tied 
the score at 18-18 and the Valley never 
led again. 

Schafer Sparks Wildcats 

At the start of the second quarter, the 
Wildcats must have thought that they 
were from Kentucky instead of Villano- 
va, as they scored ten consecutive points 
while holding Lebanon Valley scoreless. 
Bob Schafer, who was a thorn in the side 
of the Dutchmen throughout the game, 
had nine of these points as he repeatedly 
befuddled the Valley defense while driv- 
ing in towards the basket. 

When the Dutchmen did get going, 
they found that Villanova was success- 
fully clogging the middle which made it 
very difficult for Sorrentino, Landa, and 
Finkelstein to drive through and score. 
At halftime, the Wildcats had a twelve 
point advantage, 38-26. 

The Blue and White men came out for 
the second half determined to make up 
for the ground that they had lost in the 
first half, and for a time they had the 
diehard Valley rooters believing that they 
could do it. Capitalizing on a scoring 
lapse by Schafer and company, the 
Dutchmen, paced by Landa and Fin- 
kelstein, narrowed the gap to three points 
late in the third period. The quarter 
ended with the Valley only six points 
behind, 52-46, and within easy striking 

The Axe Falls 

With Tom Foley, a 6'4" sophomore, 
throwing in four field goals early in the 
final quarter, Villanova clinched the 
game with an eleven point spree. Then it 
was a matter of playing out the game 
as the Dutchmen put on an all-court 
press which the Wildcats used to great 
advantage in increasing their lead to the 
final fourteen points. 

Bob Schafer was high man for the 
night with twenty-seven points, while for 
the Valley Finkelstein and Landa had 
eighteen and sixteen points, respectively. 
Outside of these two, however, nobody 
else had any kind of a scoring night. 
The Dutchmen, for the most part, were 
way off with their shots while Villanova 
controlled both boards effectively. This 
can be seen in the statistics as the Dutch- 
men only averaged thirty per cent from 
the floor and made only a little more 
than half of their foul shots. 

However, there is nothing to be asham- 
ed of in this loss, as the Dutchmen 
fought hard and if they had been a little 
more experienced, they could have won. 
It is unfortunate that the Villanova game 
and the 2 games with Temple come too 
early in the season before the team has 
had a chance to play together. However, 
the Valley may spring a surprise or two 
yet as the season progresses.

The "L" Men 

The newest figure into the "L" Men 
column typifies physically the speci- 
men produced by the rugged coal 
mining towns of Pennsylvania. At 
a well-proportioned two hundred 
pounds, Louis Gittleman, who calls 
Minersville his home, stands an im- 
pressive 73 inches. 

He was fortunate in being able to 
attend Minersville High, a school re- 
nowned for its exceptional athletics, 
and was also fortunate in possessing 
such outstanding athletic ability that 
he was named on both the football 
and basketball All-County teams. 

After completing his secondary ed- 
ucation, Lou started his college career 
at Syracuse. Having transferred from 
the New York School, Lou entered 
the Valley and is presently finishing 
his third year. During these three 
years, Lou has given up basketball, 
preferring to concentrate his efforts 
on improving his football. And these 
efforts have not been in vain. In his 
three years of playing at the center 
position, he has developed into one 
of the better Valley linemen. This 
past season he played both offense 
and defense, averaging close to 55 
minutes per game. 


At the age of 21 Lou will be gradu- 
ated from Lebanon Valley as a busi- 
ness major. His immediate plans in- 
clude a mandatory hitch with Uncle 
Sam's Army, and then he plans to 
snter some phase of business.

Annville, Pa. 

Blue and White Wallops 
Western Maryland 

In their first regulation game of the 
season, the Blue and White Flying 
Dutchmen romped over an inept Western 
Maryland team to the tune of 83-51 on 
December 3. It was hardly a contest 
from the beginning as the Dutchmen, 
fastbreaking at will, doubled the score 
at the end of the first quarter and kept it 
that way until coach Marquette began to 
show a little mercy by putting in the sec- 
ond string players. 

Valley Starts With a Rush 
With Howie Landa, Lou Sorrentino, 
and Don Reinhard settting the pace, the 
Dutchmen rolled off to a 20-10 lead at 
the end of the first quarter. Then, as 
Herb Finkelstein got into the act in the 
second quarter, the Valley increased its 
lead so that the score was 47-22 when 
the first half came to an end. In that 
first half the Green Terrors were held 
to only seven field goals; this was the 
result of both the Valley's tight zone de- 
fense and their own miserable shooting 
from the outside. 

Dutchmen Increase Lead 
The situation was no better in the third 
quarter for Western Maryland as Herb 
Finkelstein paced the Dutchmen to a 69- 
37 third quarter lead. Then, as that per- 
iod came to a close, coach Marquette 
sent in the second string. This helped 
the Green Terrors somewhat in the last 
quarter as they stayed with the Dutch- 
men, each team scoring fourteen points. 

Three men shared scoring honors for 
Lebanon Valley. Lou Sorrentino was 
high man with seventeen points while 
Howie Landa and Herb Finkelstein fol- 
lowed him with sixteen apiece. Arnold 
Needleman was the only man who hit in 
the double figures for the Green Terrors; 
he managed to get twelve. 

Pennsylvania Military College's Cadets 
came marching into the Valley with 
hopes of avenging a stinging 116-78 de- 
feat suffered last year at the hands of 
L.V.C.'s District Two N.C.A.A. champs, 
but their hopes were shattered as the 
Dutchmen trounced them, 84-54. 

At the start of the game, after the 
Dutchmen had sunk a pair of fouls, the 
Cadets struck back with two field goals 
to take the lead, 4-2. The lead alternate- 
ly changed hands until midway in the 
quarter when P. M. C. got "hot" and 
sank everything thrown at the basket. At 
3:08 of the first period, the military 
men from Chester led, 14-8. 

Dutchmen Lead After First Quarter 

Then the Valley, undaunted, began to 
move. Finkeltsein scored three of his 
22 points on a drivein lay-up and foul. 
Dick Shover contributed two points on a 
jump shot and Howie Landa tossed a 
lay-up to tie the score at 16 all with 
only 34 seconds remaining. Lou Sorren- 
tino poured in a jump shot and Valley 
took the lead, 18-16, at the end of the 
first quarter. As the Dutchmen took the 
second quarter tip off, they began to 

roll and were never headed during the 
remainder of the game. Three minutes 
and eight seconds passed before the Ca- 
dets could sco e. In fact, they could col- 
lect only eight points altogether in this 
period, while Rinso's boys rang up 21. 

In the third quarter Reinhard again 
started the scoring with a shot from the 
keyhole. The Dutchmen kept rolling and 
led the Cadets by 21 points, 61-40, at the 
end of three periods. 

To start the fourth quarter Reinhard 
pushed in two points. P. M. C. retaliated 
with three. Bob Nelson came into the 
game and dropped in a left-hand hook 
which drew applause from the crowd. 
Then, leading 71-43, Rinso sent in his 
reserves, who continued to roll up the 
points. In desperation, P. M. C. put on a 
full court press with 2:30 remaining. A 
long pass from "Whip" Rosier to Kenny 
Ellis, which he dropped in, added 2 more 
points, and Don Banchik ended the scor- 
ing with a lay-up after an assist from 
Ken Schuler. Herb Finkelstein was high 
for the Dutchmen with 22, while Ambro> 
sino tallied 24 for the losers.
